The Council of Europe has launched a pilot mentoring programme called Div-A-Diversity Accelerator. This programme aims at testing a new approach to rendering the media landscape in Europe more inclusive with regard to population diversity and more balanced in relation to diversity issues.

The Council of Europe is creating an international group of alternative multimedia journalists who have established their own business models using transmedia/multimedia/crossmedia journalism and crowdfunding/sponsoring in order to monitor ten individuals or groups of young media professionals who are already committed to diversity inclusiveness to use the tools new media offers and launch their own start-ups.
