Mexico – June 2017
On June 23 and 24th, we held a workshop for 24 indigenous peoples youth and forestry communities in Mexico City with Red MOCAF’s and UNDP’s support.
The workshop was organized for the participants of the contest “Young Guardians of the Forest” by Red MOCAF and AMPB. Several videos were collected in which young people from the states of Michoacan, Guerrero, Tamaulipas, Queretaro and Mexico State, show about sustainable management of forests in their communities. Ivan Jaripiro, a young indigenous filmmaker from Panama, delivered the training to his Mexican counterparts.
Video is a powerful tool for young people to share the reality of their communities from the sight of their culture. The course focused on the bases of audiovisual language and narrative techniques, in order for students to develop the ability to create impact content for specific audiences.
