UNESCO, The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, is launching a call for submissions of video podcast proposals for a series of production grants.
The organization wishes to produce and distribute a series of video podcasts for all audiences, but especially young adults (20-35), aimed at increasing understanding of the development and societal issues identified as priority fields by UNESCO, namely:
- Human Rights;
- Fight against discrimination, based on race, gender or other issues (e.g. HIV status);
- Millennium Development Goals, particularly poverty-alleviation and gender equality and women empowerment;
- Freedom of Expression;
- Intercultural communication.
