UNESCO launches a Youth Newsroom for South East Europe and Turkey
“Youth’s perspective is often missing in the journalistic reporting of the region. Gathering young and aspiring journalists and equipping them with additional tools to express themselves professionally is a unique opportunity for bridging this gap,” said Alma Fejzić from the Centre for Development of Youth Activism (CROA), UNESCO’s partner in Sarajevo in charge of establishing the SEE Youth Newsroom.
Gathering 31 young journalists aged between 22 and 30 from the whole region, the SEE Youth Newsroom will act as a network providing participants with concrete opportunities to work in a team and cover activities and programmes promoting freedom of expression implemented by UNESCO or the EU. The Newsroom will serve as a platform to highlight their work and stories.
