IBB’s planning for 2021 right now! Here’s a sneak peek at just a few of the things we’re working on. With your help, we’ll launch our New Middle Eastern Enlightenment Campaign, a major new initiative engaging more than 100 million Middle East youth this decade.
Local voices that stand for Enlightenment values
Banned books, a new feature combating regional government censorship. E.g., the New York Times recently highlighted the Kuwaiti government's role in banning more than 4,300 books, from Orwell to ‘Little Mermaid"
Critical thinking, including media literacy and more. We live in the age of information, but also we live in the age of disinformation. IBB will expand on its critical thinking and media literacy series to help in-region youth navigate new media, so they can avoid falling for extremist propaganda and fake news
All told, the campaign will produce hundreds of free videos and infographics, plus thousands of articles - capitalizing on what IBB learned from the Stop the Spread COVID campaign
None of this is possible without your help. Thank you!
