U.N. VIDEO PROJECT FOR YOUTH –
Send your videos now!
The Education Outreach Section of the United Nations Department of Public Information invites young people from around the world between the ages of 15 and 24 to submit 10- to 15-second videos in English on how the Sustainable Development Goals can build peace. When making your videos, think about why ending poverty, addressing climate change, forging equality and ensuring access to education are important to creating a more peaceful world.
The most engaging videos will be featured on the United Nations International Day of Peace YouTube channel. Some will even be shown at an official event at United Nations Headquarters in New York on 16 September.
U.N. DPI will be posting selected clips through 21 September, the International Day of Peace. See inspiring videos RIGHT NOW!
Youth IDP Videos
When you make your video, please state your name and country at the beginning. [Example: “My name is Jimena, and I’m from Peru.”] And remember that all videos should be appropriate for viewing by younger audiences.
Your submissions will be accepted until 1 September. So start sending your videos to firstname.lastname@example.org today!
