sharing in governance of extractive industries
The Global Youth Anti-Corruption Forum brings together 50 young civil society leaders, musicians, and journalists from around the World to exchange their experiences and formulate action plans to fight corruption in their countries.
Join virtually at http://voices-against-corruption.ning.com/
This youth events aims at strengthening the Global Youth Anti-Corruption network (GYAC) by engaging emerging leaders, many of whom come from Fragile States, in the dialogue to build stronger social accountability mechanisms.
The forum uses music and ICT as two innovative approaches that are appealing to young people and that have proven to be effective tools for outreach and social monitoring. The strong IT expertise of young activists can help advocates for good governance to be more effective in the fight against corruption. And music can help break the taboo on corruption that still persists in many countries. For this event several songs addressing corruption challenges have been produced by musicians coming from countries such as Malawi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), and Columbia.
