With the support of the European Union in Côte d’Ivoire, this two-year project puts press cartoons at the heart of an approach aimed at promoting freedom of expression and strengthening democratic culture while fighting against exclusionary discourse and disinformation in the Ivorian electoral context. The project targets young people in Côte d’Ivoire through education in citizenship, media and information, with a view to the forthcoming elections, but also to make them ambassadors of a democratic culture for the whole of Ivorian society.
