OECD Video Competition 2018 (Win a trip to the MENA Regional Conference in Amman, Jordan)
Deadline: November 24, 2018.
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation & Development (OECD) invites entries for the 2018 Video Competition. The competition seeks a 100 second video with your ideas on the question: “How can your local government strengthen engagement with young people?.” If you are between 18 and 35 and want to make your voice heard, this is the time to be creative!
- Are you interested in being more engaged in the public life of your city?
- Do you feel young people want to participate more in the public decision-making of their cities and neighbourhoods, but find it difficult to be heard?
- Do you feel public policies and services could better respond to the needs of youth?
Make a short video (100 seconds max) that answers the question: “How can your local government* strengthen engagement with young people?” and win a trip to the MENA Regional Conference on Youth Participation and Public Life in Amman (Jordan), Automn 2019
