Around 80 young people from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Syria and Tunisia came together in Beirut this week to exchange views about their relationship with the media, their media habits and especially their expectations: which media for which kind of society(ies)?

The Forum, organised by the EU in partnership with CFImedias and the Samir Kassir Foundation, addressed several topics including the role of the media in helping young people to find a job, media literacy, the questioning of authorities by young people through the media, youth expectations towards the media, etc.

Two major debates discussed:

  • Traditional Media and Youth: Disenchantment
  • The media, a bridge for youth employment?

The Forum featured 12 workshops and 9 presentations of projects or initiatives.
