Journalistiek voor een eerlijke en duurzame wereld

RNW Media is an international organisation that builds digital communities for social change. We use online media to engage young people (15-30 years old) on sensitive and often-taboo subjects – from love, sex and relationships to civic participation. Through our platforms, young people get comprehensive science- and rights-based information and a safe space to focus on their aspirations and engage in constructive dialogue about what really matters to them.

The millions of young people who visit our platforms and engage with us and each other, provide us with important insights on the issues that matter to them and the needs they have. Our PMEL team collaborates with country teams and strategic partners to analyse these insights and bring the evidence of young people’s views and needs to the attention of decision- and opinion-makers. PMEL stands for Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning.
