Alexandre Heully is the Executive Director and publisher of cafebabel.com. Cafebabel.com is the first European current affairs magazine designed for readers across borders and published in 6 languages: French, English, German, Italian Spanish and Polish. He graduated from the Institut d’Etudes Politiques in Strasbourg in 2001, and holds a Master Degree in International Relations in Paris Panthéon-Sorbonne. Passionate about online media, he co-founded cafebabel.com with the vision that online citizen participation would revolutionize journalism and politics. As a convinced European, Alexandre has been working for over 13 years at cafebabel.com to expand, raise funds and launch original journalistic project for one of the most innovative media organization in Europe. Relying on the principle of participatory journalism, cafebabel.com is made by a unique network of 1,500 volunteers – authors, photographers, translators and bloggers – in 20 cities in Europe, whose contributions are edited by a team of full time professional journalists based in Paris. Every year cafebabel.com sends ‘on the ground’ multicultural teams of young citizen journalists in European cities to report on European society and culture. Cafebabel.com was created in 2001 on the belief that media have the power to break down boundaries and to allow a new generation to make its voice heard.
