News Decoder trustee to head United World Colleges network


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.
