Participants will learn about the creation of No Cap News: a multimedia student-run global news organization created to provide today’s youth with factual, nonpartisan news coverage. It has accumulated over 115,000 readers from over 15 countries since March 2020.
Attendees will learn about the importance of media nonpartisanship in reliably informing youth about major global events and trends (advancing SDG 5 in particular). They will also learn how to eliminate bias from their own news consumption, avoiding the trap of online echo chambers. Additionally, there will be a heavy focus on managing multinational youth organizations on a fully virtual basis, particularly amid the coronavirus pandemic. Those in attendance will also learn about how to get involved with No Cap News to locally advance SDG 5.
Hi there! My name is Rocco Fantini, and I’m a founder at No Cap News (NCN). As an avid MUNer, I’ve competed at some of the top conferences in the world, and now I’m taking those leadership skills in transforming others’ understanding of international politics, in both my hometown city of Los Angeles, California, and beyond.
My name is Cassidy Dalva, and I am an International Baccalaureate student at Granada Hills Charter. As a nationally-ranked orator, I have a passion for communication, education, and current events. I am the co-founder of No Cap News and serve as the organization’s marketing director, leading efforts to expand its reach.
