A web radio to promote free speech in Tunisia

 A web radio has been launched in Tunisia this month by the Tunisian Association of Audiovisual and Multimedia Animation (ATAAM), funded under a Euromed Youth grant, aiming to serve as a platform to allow citizens to express themselves on themes like human rights and citizenship.

As part of its project, “Open window on the promotion of democratic culture through the practice of projects using multimedia”, ATAAM this week also held its Multimedia and Democracy action, aimed at using access to multimedia tools (local radio, web TV, neighbourhood papers) and use of blogs and social media as a way to reinforce democratic culture among young people. The action was organised in partnership with groups from Dresden and Marseille.
The project is funded under Euromed Youth's Action 3 (Training and networking), which includes projects that support youth organizations and players in the youth sector in the Euro-Mediterranean region. It focuses on the exchange of experiences, expertise and good practices as well as activities that can promote projects, partnerships and perennial and high-quality networks.
EuroMed Youth IV is funded by the EU during the period 2010-2013 with a budget of €5 million under the European Neighbourhood Policy. The programme aims at stimulating and encouraging mutual comprehension among young people in the Euro-Mediterranean region, fighting stereotypes and prejudices and enhancing the sense of solidarity among youth by promoting active citizenship. It also seeks to contribute to the development of youth policies in the Mediterranean Partner Countries. (ENPI Info Centre)
