Are you working to build peaceful, just and inclusive societies? Have you been supporting local-level work to improve opportunities for peace?
The United Nations committed to achieving peaceful, just, and inclusive societies through Sustainable Development Goal 16+ (SDG16+), which is part of the 2030 Agenda’s call to achieve peace and sustainable development in every country around the world. To achieve this, we all have an important part to play.
No matter how small our actions may seem to us, when we put them together, these stories can have great power. We want to hear how you are taking part in the global movement working to build peaceful, just and inclusive societies.
We are asking for submissions of short videos to tell your story. From small initiatives making a difference in your community, to a national awareness-raising campaign, to work at a global or regional level – the best videos will be showcased at an event during the United Nations High- Level Political Forum in July, with selected candidates sponsored to attend in person.
Submission deadline: Wednesday May 15th, 2019 by 6:00pm EST
*Videos received after the deadline are eligible to be showcased but will not be considered for subsidized participation in the event.*
Entries should demonstrate any innovative and/or inspiring approaches to using SDG16+ in a practical way. The more creative, the better!
There is no need to use any professional equipment – videos can be shot on any standard smart phone. See our sample video here >>
