Who is behind Shabab Live?

Shabab Live is a joint project of DW Akademie, Al Khatt and Al-JANA

Al Khatt - Tunisia

Al Khatt is a Tunisian media NGO co-founded in 2013 by a team of journalists, developers, and graphic designers. Its mission is to devolve information and reshape journalism. The organization aims to be a professional hub for new journalism and a place for debate and critical reflection on the journalism future.

DW Akademie - Germany

DW Akademie is Germany’s leading organization for international media development. We believe that independent media and responsible journalism are essential worldwide. Given Germany’s history, we believe that people should be able to freely express their views and have access to independent sources of information.

Al Jana - Lebanon

The Arab Resource Center for Popular Arts (ARCPA), commonly known as AL-JANA, was established in 1990 as a local NGO registered in Lebanon. ARCPA works with marginalized communities through documenting their enriching experiences and creative contributions, while at the same time enhancing the capacity of youth towards conflict transformation, active learning, and creative expression.

Bridging the gap :
Youth and broadcasters in Arab countries

A focus group survey

Why do young people turn away from traditional media such as TV and Radio? How do they perceive broadcasters in their countries and what topics or format would they like to see more in broadcasters’ programs? The youth focus group survey conducted by Arab World Research and Development (AWRAD) for the project Shabab Live gives answers.

The morning show has had the same presenters since I was a child… As if there are no young media graduates… And they offer the same information on the same topics ever since
