UNESCO taps media to bolster youth policy
BEIRUT: The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) office in Beirut invited the Lebanese press on Friday to a workshop on formulating national youth policy. The workshop, entitled "Role of the Media in the Nation Youth Policy Formulation in Lebanon" and held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Beirut, was to sensitize the media on "the importance of having a national youth policy," said program coordinator of the project Rindala Abdel-Baki.
"The media is critical in highlighting the importance of national youth policy," said Abdel-Baki. "Without the media, this project will remain weak."
Participants were encouraged to suggest measures the Lebanese media could adopt to enhance the visibility of youth-policy formulation and enhance the participation of concerned stakeholders.
