Studies across the Western Balkans show that youth overwhelmingly lack trust in media, are highly underrepresented in media and often portrayed as a single unit subjected to various stereotypes. Focused on these issues, we have developed our Youth Programme which provides:
- training programmes,
- tailored mentorship,
- regional cooperation and networking opportunities for youth media outlets and young journalists in the region
The British Council is working in partnership with Thomson Foundation, BIRN and INTRAC on the Media for All programme funded by the UK Government.
