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.
