Reshaping Narratives in Zanzibar (RENAZA 2017)
Young people everywhere in the world are currently exposed to various kinds of narratives that pull them into engaging in violent extremism activities. These narratives do often get communicated through face to face communications and both social and conventional media channels. They are frequently connected into normal social and economic themes that resonate into youth’s negative conditions, hence making it easier for them to believe into new unverified narratives and results that often leads into potential youth recruitment and radicalization into violent extremism.
With generous support from Foundation for Civil Society, CYD is implementing the project on Reshaping Narratives in Zanzibar. The project seeks to counter negative narratives through social media, that can easily reach to the young audience, and be utilized to spread negative campaigns and propaganda based on its unregulated nature and easy and open access to contents. These narratives, left unattended, lead the society to social unrest, political turmoil, or state of confusions. The expected outcome of this project is to see the Zanzibari youth correctly use social media to build a stronger, more unified and prosperous Zanzibar.
