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

challenge 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 in recent months 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 4 major surveys in 2018. Topics included:
• Diversity and Multiculturalism: A survey on how Libyan youth identify themselves.
• Migration of young Libyans: A survey on whether young Libyans wish to migrate to other countries, and why.
• Libyan Women in the Workforce: A survey on how young Libyans view a woman’s role in society and the workspace.
• Social Media and youth: A survey on how young people deal with social media, what type of content they seek and the issues they’re interested in.

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

‘Our audience is extremely active and committed, sending many comments and images to our Facebook account every day. Their engagement is impressive. They simply love our Facebook page, which has a 4.3 star review rating.’ Karima Idrissi, Programme host.
