Are you 31 or younger? Have you ever helped someone understand that migrants enrich our communities and want to share your experience? Do you have a small activity, an initiative, or project working towards changing narratives on migration? If yes, then this Change the Conversation Challenge is for you!
Given the success of the Youth Leadership and Innovation Award on Migration during the Youth Forum 2021, they decided to continue empowering already existing youth engagement through this platform and challenge.
The United Nations Major Group for Children and Youth (UNMGCY) is the UN General Assembly-mandated, official, formal and self-organised mechanism for young people to meaningfully engage in the UN.
- By telling them more about your experience in changing narratives, you can apply for the 500$ seed funding, but also be featured on their communication channels.
- For the first phase, you will have to complete this form and send a video answering some questions about you and what you have been doing to change the conversation on migration!
- The jury will revise all the applications and will decide which videos pass to the next phase. In the second phase, the finalists will compete for an additional audience award, where the public will be choosing their favourite activity or project.
