Young people in the Mediterranean region, now have the opportunity to be a part of significant "decision making" in their own communities, through a project instigated by the UN Educational Scientific and Cultural organisation (UNESCO).

Networks of Mediterranean Youth or NET-MED Youth, is a three-year project which was implemented in 2014 by UNESCO, and funded by the European Union.

It enables youngsters to engage in public policy decisions by promoting freedom of expression and and information awareness.

May Yaacoub spoke to Amina Lahbabi  from NET-MED Youth about the challenges they face moving forward.
