Webinar: Participatory Video in Peacebuilding: Lessons Learnt from Occupied Palestinian Territories and Kyrgyzstan

(30 January, 11.00 GMT +1 / CET register here

This webinar will focus on participatory video methodology and how this was used for peacebuilding in Palestine and Kyrgyzstan. Practical examples and lessons learned will be shared. 

Participatory video (PV) methodology can answer some of the most challenging questions in peacebuilding. It is powerful in particularly polarised conflict settings, and among particularly marginalised people. As an innovative and engaging tool, PV leverages modern technology to effectively build self-awareness and agency, bridge divides, and amplify messages in ways that can reach policy-makers. PV combines hands-on training, using interactive games, with the production of short videos that bring up issues of major concern to participants. Join our webinar to find out more!
