In observance of the twin Diversity Days 2021 (World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development, 21st of May; International Day for Biological Diversity, 22nd of May), our #YourStoryOurFuture Storytelling Campaign is running a month-long special call-out for compelling and strong stories from youth that bridge society, culture and nature.
Although bringing together the social and the ecological is already at the heart of our Storytelling Programme, we want to use this specific period of time to center and support global social movements and their remembrance, mobilisations and awareness campaigns happening across May & June, including World Refugee Day, LGBTQI+ Pride Month, and the anniversary of the George Floyd anti-racism protests.
At Y4N we also recognise that such bridge is not only timely, but growingly urgent. The world is currently grappling with an array of cultural shifts and social inequalities exacerbated by the ongoing pandemic and by the business-as-usual practices which are also behind the climate and ecological crises. As a global youth group from a variety of backgrounds and walks of life, it is clear for us that there is no climate or environmental justice without (diverse forms of) social justice.
There will be one prize for each winner under each of the following themes:
Opt-out at any time. No strings attached.
