Following the wave of protests of the Arab Spring, freedom of speech is finding new voice through young people in a number of North African countries. To support this change and echo this freedom of expression in the media, the Shabab Up ! School project is dedicated to basic training for journalists.
At the heart of the system, journalism schools offer basic training founded on a democratic approach to deliver a structured, objective analysis of information.
This component offers support for the development of the curricula of journalism schools.
The Shabab Up project also includes a component for radio stations.
Work sessions organised between heads of teaching and professionals to look at and propose changes to curricula, with the introduction of practical modules and improvement of the skills and knowledge of the teachers and students involved.
