During our get-together in Sarajevo last month we revised the aim, goals and objectives of menac. We also forumlated a mission statement for our work.
The mission of menac is to work to enhance the voices of young journalists and media-makers across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, to promote intercultural dialogue and to promote the development of a better contextualisation of the respective regions.
Enhance awareness among young media-makers, policy-makers, decision-makers and civil society on good media practices, how to avoid stereotyping and promote a broader understanding for culture and diversity.
Provide platforms – online and offline – promoting intercultural dialogue.
Establish sustainable and ‘positive’ partnerships with national European, Middle Eastern and North African organisations and networks.
Become a reliable partner for institutions and foundations for the organisation of projects relating to menac’s mission statement.
Organise projects and events for young journalists and media-makers in the European, Middle Eastern and North African region.
Create a sustainable network for young journalists and media-makers throughout the regions to facilitate the implementation of projects and partnerships between national organisations and networks.
