Label: Purpose & Activities

With the hopes of spreading a culture of tolerance in Tunisia, members arranged a meeting for 30 bloggers from across Tunisia to come up with a Charter/Code of Ethics to ensure that they will not spread rumors or fake news and will not promote violence. They also ran a campaign to spread awareness about the HIV (AIDS) disease; they organized a rap music party for 120 youth, and spread AIDS awareness. They organized capacity building for newly established non-profit organizations, teaching them how to blog and publish their work on social media. This group’s most memorable moment was spending time with talented but impoverished youth, helping them create art. CC members’ future plans include creating more films about youth in neglected areas in order to have their voices heard across the country. They also hope to establish a radio show to unite youth.
