New Welsh language digital service
A new Welsh language service, , is being launched today in Cardiff to serve the city's estimated 36,000 Welsh speakers.
The digital news and networking service will be introduced at the annual Tafwyl festival. It has been developed by and for the community with support from university's school of journalism.
Anyone who has a story to tell, news to share or an image to display can contribute content to PoblCaerdydd through a new tool developed by the university and its partner, the psychological creative agency
Cardiff university's Sara Moseley said: "Wales has a proud tradition of community newspapers with over 50 of them serving each part of the country.
"But with changing patterns of media consumption and young people very much used to generating and curating their own content, the Cardiff paper Y Dinesydd was seeing circulation go down and audience age profile go up.
"We were very happy to help when they approached us… It hasn't been hard to find a new generation of talented people who are embedded in their community and passionate about making this work.
"We've been able to help them set up and we've use the outcomes from our research to help spread the ownership for this venture far and wide and really pull in good content."
