Starved of information that was not controlled by the authorities and long deprived of freedom of expression, in the wake of the Arab Spring young people are finding their voices through the media. Interacting online and through social networks, young people are also taking an interest in traditional radio. Educated, committed and determined, they nonetheless find it difficult to report on and grasp issues of democracy.
In this context, the Shabab Up! Radio project is supporting the professional development of radio stations, a medium which is recognised as an effective means of reaching the masses and relaying messages from civil society.
The project aims to promote the participation of young people in radio programmes, supporting them in the development of interactive content for the 15-25 age bracket.
“The Shabab Up! project has put us on the path to journalism and helped us better understand our listeners. We have learned a lot from the various training initiatives, enabling us to double our audience in one year.”
