Twelve activists from Tunisian youth organisations had the opportunity to reinforce their civil society communication tools as they participated in three consecutive workshop sessions, held by the EU-funded project NET-MED Youth in Tunis on media-coaching and initiation to plea-writing. 
The workshop series is part of the Media axis of the NET-MED Youth project, which intends to build an equitable and objective coverage of information about youth, their rights, achievements and points of view in mainstream media.
From message-creation and press release-writing to the initiation to prepared and spontaneous interview exercises and much more, these were amongst the activities covered in this interactive media-coaching workshop for young NGO members in charge of press relations. Initiation to plea-writing was one of the main goals of the workshop.
NET-MED Youth aims to improve the access and effective participation of young people in mainstreaming their priorities into legislation and national planning in the Southern Mediterranean Partner countries. Specifically, it aims to build the capacities of youth organisations in ENP South countries and to enhance networking among them in order to reduce the fragmentation of efforts and harness the collective potential of young people in achieving democratic transition towards active citizenship, political participation and social inclusion.
