NET-MED Youth has developed different activities to improve young people’s representation in media, including through research aimed at monitoring content published across diverse media platforms and generating knowledge about youth´s habits and perceptions about them.
We facilitate dialogue and collaboration between youth and key media actors, supporting our networks as they carry out outreach and strategic communication actions; fostering youth-friendly, inclusive, objective and fair media coverage that reflects their perspectives and helps advance their advocacy efforts.
We deliver trainings and disseminate resources to promote freedom of expression, enhanced communication skills, media and information literacy, and youth-generated media content. We also implement capacity building programs and transnational exchanges for young journalists, bloggers and citizen journalists.
