(Washington DC – May 14, 2012) This morning at 10AM EDT (3PM Tunis time), AAM’s Tunis-based office, called Association Tunisie Media (ATM), and Mosaique FM will host a town hall discussion on Tunisia’s youth unemployment crisis. The event will broadcast live on Mosaique FM and connect audiences in the coastal city of Nabeul and the rural city of Syliana.
This timely discussion will cover topics such as:
- The gap between youth skill sets and the jobs available to them.
- The barriers young entrepreneurs face in acquiring startup capital and bringing their ideas to life.
- The success of women in the workforce and how it impacts employment prospects for young men.
This interactive town hall format provides a unique forum for citizens to engage in dialogue with experts and one another on the critical issues facing Tunisia.
The discussion, which will be in Arabic, will be live streamed on the Mosaique FM website: http://www.mosaiquefm.net/. You can also listen on the TuneIn website or on your mobile device by downloading the free TuneIn app and then searching for Mosaique FM.
