The JAMAITY Association launches its new program called JEUN'EXPERTS on the 8th of November 2017 in Carthage, Tunisia, in partnership with UNESCO in the context of the NET-MED Youth project funded by the European Union.

Jeun'Experts is a video-based CV library with a total of about one hundred profiles forming an interactive online database of young experts. This platform is also scalable to collect new entries of experts in Arabic and French, and open access.

The profiles of the young experts were selected following a call for applications using an evaluation grid. Each candidate selected and included in the platform, was provided with technical support to create their video CV, then put online in digital format on the platform

This program brings together young people aged 25 to 39 and with at least three years of expertise in the fields of economics, politics, social, cultural and media.

This open access database aims to promote young people's participation in public debate and to promote a plural, fair and objective treatment of youth issues in the media and in the public sphere.

This project aims to fulfill four objectives:

1. Promote the commitment, contribution and perspectives of all young people on political, economic, scientific, cultural and social issues in the media.

2. The valorization of skills by a personalized digital format accessible to all.

3. Facilitating the networking of professional actors (National Institutions, Cooperation Agencies, Civil Society Organizations, Local Authorities) working with and for youth, to enable them to have a choice of profiles of young professionals and Tunisian experts according to skills and expertise sought for interventions and press interviews.

4. Contribute to the development of collaborative uses of digital platforms in Tunisia.
