They will learn what corruption implies and how it can be prevented, so as to suggest their own solutions for reducing this phenomenon. Over 70 young people throughout Moldova will participate during May-October 2021 in the second edition of the Anticorruption Ideas Club. The event is organized by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the National Anticorruption Center (NAC), in partnership with the Youth Media Center.
The participants, aged between 15 and 20 years old, were selected by a jury based on the answers provided to a questionnaire. At the meetings of the club, they will learn how to craft anticorruption messages to reach out to the public, but also to create media products, videos, images to express their pro-integrity ideas to be promoted through social media and other communication platforms.
“Anticorruption Ideas Club is an online community where every young person has the possibility to learn about and to acknowledge the risks, consequences of corruption and how to prevent this phenomenon. It is important for each of us to start by strongly condemning corruption phenomenon, so as to succeed in curbing it,” mentioned one of the participants attending the Club, Stas Cebotari from Drochia.
“I think that it is important to know how corruption occurs, to know how the schemes of those involved in illegalities may be exposed and to find out how we get involved in preventing them,” mentioned Carolina Vieru, from Pepeni village, Sângerei.
The Anticorruption Ideas Club will meet till the autumn of 2021, when the graduates will participate in a competition of media, video, and text products. The most active six young people have the chance to enroll in the anticorruption volunteers’ team under the National Anticorruption Center, and five participants will be awarded by UNDP Moldova.
The Anticorruption Ideas Club is organized within the “Curbing corruption by building sustainable integrity in the Republic of Moldova” Project, implemented by UNDP Moldova with the support of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
