Traditional media and bureaucratic restrictions are no longer walls high enough to deprive our society of accountable governance through youth activism. Technology offers the youths with innovative and multi-faceted ways to:
1. Voice out their opinions on government policies and issues of concern to their target audience through multifaceted social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Blogs etc. Good examples would be the "Dumsor March" in 2015, "Bring back out Girls campaign", “The Occupy Ghana Campaign” and many others.
2. Test government efficacy by making all elements and information associated to governance and government decisions accessible to both the government and citizenry such as figures and technical related to public projects for example, the recent "bus branding saga" etc.
3. Facilitate accountable governance in data collection and record keeping through data management systems
4. Simplify and make all elements and information associated to governance and government decisions accessible to both the government and citizenry through interactive websites and mobile applications.
