Global Day. Stories for Change

Wednesday, 26. Oct 2022, 10:00 - 16:30
Filmpalast · Kino 1
Ticket 10:00 Uhr
In cooperation with Barbarella

These days moving images and modern audiovisual media are indispensable for communication about development goals, the actors in the field and their projects. They present entirely new chances to reach a wide audience, to inform the public and to reach people on an emotional level and mobilise them into action. But how does storytelling work as a means to reach development goals? The Global Day presents strategies, current projects and best practice cases. On the evening of the Global Day the NRW Media Award for Sustainable Development and Engagement will be given out for the third time.
