Previously, the program has been conducted within the Norwegian youth society, where 5 young people were appointed by FN-sambandet to post articles on the blog, where other young people in Norway have been able to add their comments to express their views on the matter raised. Topics raised are focused on United Nations, Social and International Affairs.
The main purpose of this program is to help young people of the two countries to understand the importance of international cooperation, and encourage them to be active participants in the world society.
FN-sambandet of Norway and Tanzania are collaborative partners in the FK Exchange Program, and through that cooperation, it was agreed to have the youth of the two countries onboard.
This program will also provide a platform for Southern youth to raise their voices on the digital arena!
More than 500 young people of Tanzania were reached when introducing the program in 7 schools.
It has been almost a month since the 5 Tanzanian students received training on writing and posting on the blog Ungdomspanelet. These 5 young people will be joining other youth to post on the ungdomspanelet blog from the month of October 2011.
