|Date||:||5 January 2018|
AYON has organized a workshop on Social Media, Youth & Political Participation.
30+ youths from different colleges and CSOs participated in the program, facilitated by Mr. Saugat Gautam.
Youth today frequently get their political information from social media rather than traditional media.Social media outlets provide vast amounts of political information, from news on politics to political campaigns, and young people.
Social media can encourage youth for political engagement.
The main objective of the workshop was to provide detailed information to the participants on how social media influences political issues, how youth can be part of political discourses and share their opinion on it.
