More than 30 like-minded youths and individuals with aims of creating effective social

change met in Suva for a threeday  workshop aimed at valuing youth voices.

The workshop, which is part of the European Union-funded Valuing Voices project, was held at the Japan-Pacific ICT Centre at the University of the South Pacific in Suva from Monday to Wednesday.

The Social Media Masterclass workshop is one of the components of the broader 30-month project Valuing Voices that is delivered by the British Council and Save the Children Fiji. The overall project also seeks to contribute to democratic process by enabling greater breadth of voice in mainstream media and social media through creative arts.

It also brought together youths interested in social issues, together with NGOs and social media experts, to create online campaigns to address some of Fiji’s most pressing social change issues.

The workshop covered popular social media platforms – analytics and campaign messaging and design where participants create their own projects for an eight-week period to design and run online campaigns.

The workshop was led by international expert, Ruici  Tio, of Love Frankie, a social change agency in Bangkok, along with Jope Tarai from USP.

Vodafone Fiji boosted the project by providing 40 smartphones and free data for the participants.
