ASEAN Youth Social Journalism

Formerly known as the ASEAN Youth Citizen Journalism, the ASEAN Youth Social Journalism is an initiative by the ASEAN Foundation and the ASEAN-USAID PROSPECT, a joint project of the U.S.

Agency for International Development (USAID) and U.S. State Department, that aims to engage youth as “social journalists,” who will provide compelling media products to express their critical thinking and allow them to raise their voices on issues affecting their local communities that also have regional implications.

In 2019 the programme touches upon a topic that “explores the importance of responsive and transparent governance in their day-to-day lives, promoting the ideals of fairness, equity, and transparency in their communities and at the regional level.” The selection of such a theme is to engage talented ASEAN youth to share and promote fact-based and compelling messages that showcase the importance of reliable and transparent governance in ASEAN and its Member States through media platforms. Following the selection of 20 successful youths, a regional workshop will be conduction on 16 – 19 September 2019 in Brunei Darussalam with the Scoop, a multimedia platform for news, commentary, culture and life, as a host.
