Know Your Community, Party, Person is a three-phase project, aimed at providing youth with the right information, in digestible portions as well as a tool which can be used to hold elected officials to account more easily.
Know Your Community: is a series of video interviews with young people who are asked questions around the most pressing issues affecting the community as well as the steps being taken, if any, to address these issues.
Know Your Party: is a series of infographics which summarise the election manifestoes of each political party.
Know Your Person: will focus on video interviews with youth in communities around whether or not they know who their current ward councillor is, as well as whether or not they know the current candidates. It will also focus on brief interviews with candidates.
The dialogue aims at providing a platform for the youth to engage with politicians and discuss the manifestoes of different political parties. The discussion will help the youths, most of whom are first time voters to make a decision with regards to the political party they will vote for in the upcoming local government elections.
