Created in 2004 within the framework of a joint programming initiative between UNESCO and ISESCO* the jeunessearabe.info portal is designed to cater to the information needs of youth and youth associations in the Arab world. This portal is part of the INFOYOUTH programme, a worldwide information network on youth issues.
Last week, the portal published an online dossier on “The Power to Communicate”, aimed at highlighting the importance of communication among young people of the Arab World; allowing the youth to work together through the internet, share their views on matters that are related to UNESCO and ISESCO’s domains of competence, and discuss issues pertaining to the digital divide.
Young people and associations are invited to take part in this forum and to express themselves in Arabic and French!
