The Global Citizens’ Initiative - VIDEO CONTEST

The Global Citizens’ Initiative
People around the world are invited to submit creative videos, promoting the practice of global citizenship. Viral videos and social media reaches populations from all parts of the globe, and we want to see everyone’s stories about how people around the planet can work together to solve world problems, such as human rights, the environment, poverty alleviation, and conflicts between countries.
We need your help to show that people can join hands and build a sustainable and peaceful world community. It is communities like yours that can contribute to this global commitment of a shared planet.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead
