“Our Express” is a three-year joint project of Internews Georgia, USAID and UNICEF aimed at enabling young people to express their concerns through media as well as at building their capacity in TV production.Each programme will last 30 minutes and contain news blocks from each country with stories relevant to children and adolescents. Following the news blocks, a common theme will be examined for each country. This will enable young audiences in each country to see the similarities and differences within the Caucasus. The goal of this program is to create, via the powerful medium of television, an unprecedented contact among adolescents in the three Southern Caucasus countries of Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan.
