Mayzil’s mission is to empower Islanders.
By bringing to P.E.I. new perspectives that are non-partisan and freely available to every Islander, the goal is to get people talking and thinking about ways to rejuvenate Island society.
Some publications on P.E.I. focus on the Island’s past while others chronicle current events. Mayzil looks to the future and studies viable options to improve the quality of life for Islanders. It’s a matter of copying the successes of other societies across Canada and around the world. It means questioning the fundamentals of our society, questioning social norms, understanding what the future will likely bring, and how those factors will affect one another.
It means thinking globally and acting locally.
Today more than ever, it’s crucially important for societies to be able to adapt to the changes and challenges modern life brings. It’s Mayzil’s mission to bring to Islanders those solutions and ways to implement them.
As Stephen Hawkings said “Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.”
By using a hybrid of advocacy and solutions journalism, entertainment and opinion pieces, Mayzil aims to bring positive change to PEI. In doing so it will abide by standard journalism ethics.
