Sector 2: Communications & Media

The Communications & Media Sector focuses on both traditional and emerging multi-media platforms, including: radio, television, internet news outlets, social media sites, publishing, storytelling, virtual reality games, and educational tools. This Sector also analyzes WHAT news is shared, recognizing that many people still get their information from a monopoly of media conglomerates that intentionally spread fear-based content. To counter this restrictive and negative trend, the Virginia HUB will highlight inspirational news which assists HUB Members in building the New World.
