This is a media collaboration platform for Georgia, where talented individuals can express their journalistic and writing skills, students of the faculty of journalism or political science tutored by their profs can undertake real journalistic tests, newspapers can share their relevant articles with a vibrant and multifarious community, and other communities can support their debates and conversations with dedicated tools and contents.

On a second time, all the structured contents inserted here, with respect for their copyright and copyright holders, will be further disseminated through a more attractive website optimized for mobile devices and allowing a rapid filtering/access of contents. This could be also a centralized, global platform gathering all local platforms like "younews.ge" all over the world. At the same time, younews.ge commits to share with all the authors and users who have contributed with the platform, on the basis of both qualitative and quantitative parameters to be commonly defined, all possible incomes received from donations, grants, advertising (whether allowed on the site) and other kind of income directly or indirectly caused by the contents posted on the platform, except the financial resources necessary to ensure the functioning of the site, again to be commonly determined.

Anyone can write on younews.ge, both anonymously or creating an account, then starting to contribute with the platform at various levels: providing summaries of articles in other languages (specifically for articles written in Georgian), writing articles, creating new digests or reviews, enriching the section with all media and newspapers, and even creating special pages to present specific authors, or any other kind of special page, up to intervening on the structure itself of the platform, that is contributing with its set of rules, creating new forms and fields for new or alternate kind of contents, and so forth.
