The YouNDigital newsroom, developed as part of the YouNDigital – Youth, News and Digital Citizenship project (DOI
10.54499/PTDC/COM-OUT/0243/2021), with the reference PTDC/COM-OUT/0243/2021, based at Universidade
Lusófona University and part of CICANT – Center for Research in Applied Communication, Culture and New Technologies, is
a collaborative initiative that invites young people from all over the world to produce on topics of interest to them, which intersect with the 2030 Agenda.
Contributions are accepted in Portuguese, English, Spanish, French and Italian.
Monthly challenges are launched to encourage participants to reflect.
In May, the challenge invites reflection on and promotion of press freedom, with an emphasis on:
1) the right of young people to be informed and to make their citizenship, opinions and struggles known, challenging ageism
and condescending discourses about their civic activity;
2) the relationship between freedom of the press and democracy, which is often challenged by, for example
hate speech, polarization.
