2020 Voices of SDG16+: Stories for Global Action Video Campaign call for submission
It is with great excitement that we are launching the 2020 Voices of SDG16+: Stories for Global Action Video Campaign, under the theme of “SDG16+ and COVID-19: Local Actions for Global Solutions”.
Building on the resounding success of the 2019 Voices of SDG16+ campaign, this year’s video campaign will ask people and partners around the world to share short videos showcasing how they are contributing to the advancement of SDG16+, particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We invite participants to showcase how local actions support global solutions. We hope to receive contributions that illustrate how local action on SDG16+ is central to the response to and resilient recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, and how the principles of SDG16+ provide the foundation for shaping more peaceful, just and inclusive societies.
The most compelling videos will be shared widely in the lead up to and during the 2020 High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) from 7-16 July 2020. The top 5 storytellers will be invited to present and share their stories during a dedicated 2020 HLPF Side-Event.
You can find more detailed information on the 2020 Voices of SDG16+: Stories for Global Action video campaign, and share your video on our website at: www.voicesofsdg16plus.org/2020voices
