UNESCO Clubs 2024 Worldwide Youth Multimedia Competition

 

We invite youth around the world to take part in this year’s Multimedia Competition.  Unparalleled connectivity puts youth in one of the greatest positions to bring much needed change to the world.
 
UNESCO’s mission is to mobilize the optimism of youth to respond to an acute world problem to serve others now. Last year, motivated participants from over 181 countries submitted over 10000 projects in this highly rewarding contest.

2024 Question :

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries, developed and developing, in a global partnership. 

We are calling all youth to participate and share your voice.  

This year we are focusing on the MEDIA of MULTIMEDIA. We want you to pick one of the 17 Sustainable Goals (SDGs), create a video, a presentation loaded with visual images, a song, artwork (with an explanation), an app, a game (Sharing your game or app, in a visual presentation or movie). In your submission teach us about the goal you choose and how we can take action to create positive change in our community and globally. 
We will choose the top winner in each of the 17 Sustainable Goals (SDGs) to be highlighted and showcased.
