Expert meetup & online film festival
On 30 June, Cordaid will bring together development professionals and young leaders from all over the world to engage in meaningful partnerships. Interesting discussions on meaningful youth participation will be alternated with the online film festival ‘Young People Behind Cameras’ in which young filmmakers from conflict areas in Yemen, Iraq, Mali, Uganda, and Ethiopia will broadcast their videos.
Young people are the majority in a lot of conflict-affected countries. They are often disproportionately challenged by social, economic, and political barriers and by traditional power structures. Engaging youth meaningfully in development, peacebuilding, and decision-making allows them to influence the decisions that affect their lives.
Together with youth leaders, policy advisors, and decision-makers we will address these issues in our discussions and reflect on the videos shown during the event. They show youth’s perseverance in breaking down barriers of exclusion and fostering social change.
You are warmly invited to join our online discussions, be touched by the videos, and meet the artists who made them! Please register for this online event by sending an email with your name, country, organisation and position to Sabina Atzei before June 29th.
The event will be live-streamed on this web page, starting on Thursday the 30th of June at 13:30 CET
