You are an NGO or a TV/radio Channel based in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Jordan, Lebanon or the Palestine? And you have a project that aims to give young people a voice through media?
Apply for Shabab Live and benefit from support to give youth access to media spaces in the MENA region!
Even though young people make up an important part of the population in the MENA region, their voices and topics that concern them are often left out from TV and radio programs. Young people’s expression often remains limited to social media and internet-based platform, thus not reaching out to wider social and age groups in their countries. A recent survey conducted for Shabab Live shed a light on how to bridge the gap between youth and broadcasters, and on the type of contents young people would like to see more in broadcasters’ programs.
