UNESCO identifies youth participation in media as a key strategy that needs to be strengthened at various levels – local, regional, national, and international. These principles are articulated in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and other key documents.The several youth-led initiatives presented in this book offer some good examples of young people’s involvement in the media. An assortment of media – newspaper and magazine, radio, television and video, the Internet, and personal digital assistants – are examined, especially in relation to how youth get involved with these. This study explores the various kinds of innovative uses and participation of youth in media in different cultural contexts, and demonstrates that young people, working with a range of media materials, produce innovative content through dialogue and discussions.
