Amplifying young voices

In addition to running the platform, Huna Libya conducts periodic surveys and opinion polls to identify the opinions of young Libyans on the issues that most concern them. The results of these surveys are used to amplify young Libyans’ voices and bring their needs and aspirations to the notice of formal and informal decision makers at all levels. The results are published in various forms of content and shared with our community of young people.

Huna Libya

challenging the mindsets of young Libyans

RNW Media’s Huna Libya platform engages young Libyans with multi-media content that offers fresh perspectives on the issues that matter to them. It is an online meeting place where young people from different backgrounds can safely meet and engage in dialogue and discussion.

Inclusive content, respectful discussions

The Huna Libya team of young journalists, video makers, cartoonists and bloggers engage their audience with a range of content that stimulates online discussion. Huna Libya challenges traditional norms and perspectives in order to bring about positive change in their lives. The content strives to be as inclusive as possible addressing key issues such as youth migration, economic opportunities in a fragile state, cultural and ethnic diversity, women’s rights and freedoms, and freedom of speech, among other key issues.
Careful moderation ensures that the discussions around the content remain respectful and young Libyans from different backgrounds are able to learn more about each other and unite around issues of common interest.

Using surveys

The number of participants in the surveys has grown rapidly from 600 to more than 6,000 participants, most of them between 15 and 30 years old and with a high proportion of young women respondents.
Huna Libya conducted 5 major surveys in 2019 on topics including mental health in a time of conflict, gender-based violence (in cooperation with the United Nations Population Fund in Libya), the need to pay middlemen for help in such things as getting a passpost or employment in the public sector, young people’s views on Libya’s constitution and the attitudes and concerns people have around being photographed in public.

Results of these surveys are available online at https://hunalibya.com/survey-results/
