Young people make up a large part of the population in the countries of RHRN2 and are at the heart of the programs Theory of Change. Social media has become increasingly important for the way young people shape their ideas of the future and worldview. Celebrities, political youth leaders, activists, pop icons, journalists, YouTube artists and other types of influencers take an important role here. In this time and age knowing how social media works, how you reach your audiences best and how you can get the most out of your channels to support your advocacy is essential.
