We are thrilled to share the news that 360° media created by Gayaza High School girls; The Farm Cops – For a Hunger Free Society has been selected among the final 9 for the upcoming MY World 360º playlist, to be screened September 24 and 25 at the United Nations during the UN General Assembly. The media showcases the farm activities undertaken at the school farm geared towards promoting UN SDG’s. The Youth around the world produced media that spotlight issues most relevant to them and their communities. The Youth were supported by United Nations SDG Action Campaign, Digital Promise Global, and Oculus, to develop their digital skills, share their perspectives, and advance positive action toward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s)
Young 360° film creators from 24 countries submitted 76 media projects for consideration for the third MY World 360˚ playlist according to Lisa Jobson from Digital Promise Global. The collection included Youth voices from Argentina, Brazil, Hong Kong, India, Kenya, Uganda, and the United States, with a focus on Climate Action and Reducing Inequalities. The stories allow viewers to examine issues of climate and inequality in settings that range from the Amazon rainforest, to the largest dumpsite in Eastern Africa, to the bustling Sham Shui Po neighbourhood in Hong Kong.
The Youth created media will be screened as the Heads of States and government gather at the UN Headquarters in NewYork to review the progress in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 SDGs, The event is the first UN summit on the SDGs since the adoption of the 2030 Agenda in September 2015
