Challenge

Climate Change, Violence, Discrimination, Health and Poverty are some major challenges to achieve Sustainable Development Goals. Many young people around the world have a very limited knowledge about these issue. By producing the short films in these issues and by organizing film screenings and discussions in 64 countries we are aiming to reach out to over 300,000 young students to make them aware about the issue and encourage them to take action against it.

Solution

After the summit the delegates will return back to their communities and transmit the knowledge, skills, and attitudes gained to their peers. This will be achieved by hosting the film screenings and discussion in community centers, classrooms, and clubs to sustain dialogue aimed at changing attitudes and behavior of their peers involving local youth and media in 64 different countries in 2019/2020.

Long-Term Impact

Over 1 million people from around the world will watch our short films in Environment, Violence, Discrimination, Health, Women's Rights, Poverty and Youth Empowerment and will change their attitudes and behavior towards a sustainable, peaceful world. They will be more informed and aware about these issues and transfer the knowledge to the future generation.
