About SOUK

Founded by Matteo Bergamini in 2015, Shout Out UK was launched to fix the lack of political education in schools by bringing young people together to talk and learn about politics.

Shout Out UK (SOUK) is now a multi-award winning education platform and creative social enterprise. Fusing education and tech with film production and animation ensures we create world-class programmes on Media & Political Literacy and high impact Democratic Engagement campaigns.

Our Mission

Shout Out UK is on a mission to protect and amplify democracy by ensuring Political Literacy education is as widespread as possible, and available to all citizens in and out of school, regardless of their socio-economic background, ethnicity, or gender.

The UN declared a global infodemic in 2020. Until young people are given the tools to identity disinformation for themselves, extreme views will thrive and democracy will suffer. Let’s make political literacy available to everyone.
