Are you a student who wants to make a difference? Do you have ideas about how to make the world a better place? What do the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals mean to you?
The City of Atlanta Mayor's Office of International Affairs, in partnership with Atlanta Global Studies Center (AGSC), United Nations Association of Atlanta, and RCE Greater Atlanta will be celebrating U.N. International Youth Day by featuring a video campaign themed "The Future We Want", which will record young people explaining what sustainable development means to them, their social and political aspirations, and what they desire for their future.
The video campaign aims at driving conversations for all different ages in the K-12 and post-secondary environment–from classrooms to community organizations–with a special emphasis on young people, whose voices are often overshadowed in global affairs.
They want to hear from you!
Submit a video of yourself for no longer than 60 seconds (preferably 30 seconds) by 11:59 pm on Friday, September 4th, 2020 to be included in the "Voices of Youth" video campaign.
Students who submit videos will be invited to participate in a youth-focused webinar with U.N. experts and global leaders to discuss how youth can make a difference in today's society.
Details and video submission information: HERE (or see the attached PDF)
*Students should use their languages in their video submissions.
