ABOUT COMMUTINY – THE YOUTH COLLECTIVE (CYC)
ComMutiny – The Youth Collective (CYC) is a forum of nearly 30 youth led and youth engaging organizations that work in collaboration to promote youth leadership by architecting and promoting what we call ‘The 5th Space’. CYC’s main objective is to strengthen youth engaging organizations by offering them a platform to have an impact on a larger scale across the country using creative media and campaign strategies.
Our main program through which we architect and promote 5th spaces is Commutiny Media that seeks to create a learning space for organisations to debate, discuss and develop a shared understanding on youth development and active citizenship. We use media to get youth voices expressed and heard at different levels by different stakeholders. Through conceptualization, creation and dissemination of a wide range of diverse media products CMN promotes the idea of youth development through a 5th Space lens and bring this concept into the mainstream, building dialogue, conversation and demand for 5th Spaces. We have designed some of the most innovate and high impact public initiatives for young people, including My Space, My Manifesto focusing on youth participation in democrary, MustBol, a campaign against gender based violence, and Bas! Stop Discrimination Right Now, Samjho Toh Express on social inclusion and justice and Samvidhan LIVE! The Jagrik Project on constitutional literacy. Our 5th Space films have also gained popularity with young people and many have been featured in film festivals and won awards.
