RNW Media is funding innovation projects for content creators to pioneer the future of social impact media through the innovation fun-d.

The Innovation Fun-d is set up to give Changemakers the freedom to experiment with new digital strategies and / or new tech solutions for driving social impact. They would be funding two innovative AI Driven Pilot Projects that pioneer impact in one of the following areas:

  • Information integrityProjects to fight dis/mis/mal-information: Maybe you have an idea for a technical innovation that will revolutionise how we map the evolving flow of dis/mis/mal-information. Maybe you have a smart content strategy or targeting innovation that will boost media literacy among young people (especially around generative text and fake imagery). Maybe you have a vision for how CSOs and governments can massively grow traction around fact-based narratives with vulnerable audiences. Maybe it’s something else entirely.
  • Youth engagement – Projects that increase the participation of young people in pro-rights initiatives: Maybe you’re pioneering new content or targeting strategies that will drive user behaviour with audiences outside the pro-rights echo chamber, or maybe you have burning ideas for technical solutions such as AI customised messaging or bots. Maybe you are developing advanced tools to foster deeper connections and meaningful interactions with the younger demographic. Maybe you’re exploring a completely different angle.
