1. What is Positive Bangladesh?
– ‘Positive Bangladesh’ offers at-risk youth platform to channel their energy and promote positive thinking as a counter-narrative to the prevailing religious extremism and social stereotypes. Our campaign engages the youth positively with their communities, setting the grounds for tolerance and coexistence, and provides them with a sense of purpose and belonging.
 
 
2. What does Positive Bangladesh do?
– Positive Bangladesh empowers the youth with a positive atmosphere, enabling them to understand the values of tolerance and empathy. The campaign propagates the inherent messages of peace of Bengali culture and all four major religions of Bangladesh. Through strategic social media activity , as well as innovative, creative tools like Positive Newsroom, Comic, and Stop-motion series, it continues to share inspiring stories and opportunities among the youth to invest their energy in.
 
 
3. Who is the target audience of Positive Bangladesh?

4. Why is youth engagement so important?
– Youths with a lower level of engagements are more prone to the infamous “I-don’t know-what-to-do” syndrome, more accurately, the Twenty-first Century Syndrome. We often fail to perceive the danger this situation poses; as it naturally creates isolation and social communication disorder, these people consequently become vulnerable to manipulation. The worst-case scenario in today’s world is no scarier than ending up with an extremist outlook.
