What is Shababpedia?
Shababpedia is a website that hosts content (video, music, writing) created by young people from Arab countries. Shababpedia aims to be a collaborative space that puts the youth populations of Arab countries at centre stage. Shababpedia is an open access virtual encyclopaedia made for and regularly fed by young people from Arab countries. This means providing information from all possible perspectives on young people’s realities, expectations and cultural productions in Arab countries, contextualising the content so that it can be understood by internet users, and not presenting any point of view as the “real” or “best” one. In this way, Shababpedia encourages Arab young people to share their views on their experience, situation and expectations.
