[ad_1]

Abiodun is one of eight News Decoder trustees.

Abiodun is one of eight trustees on the board overseeing News Decoder’s parent non-profit, Nouvelles-Découvertes, which is registered with the French government. Nouvelles-Découvertes was founded in mid-2015, and News Decoder launched operations soon after that.

The board has helped News Decoder grow into a network of 21 schools in 16 countries. We work with thousands of students every year, helping them craft multimedia content for our global website, organizing student-led webinars on major topics and offering workshops on storytelling, news reporting skills and media literacy.

To help kick off the academic year, News Decoder will be holding a public webinar on November 10, entitled “Is Democracy Doomed?” and featuring students from our partner schools and Mete Coban, founder of the youth-led charity My Life My Say, which provides youth with tools to change society.

The online webinar will take place during News Decoder’s annual fundraising campaign, which highlights our non-profit’s work to create better global citizens and to strengthen democracy around the world.
