Launch of Digital Storytellers synthesis project

Tell your research story and its contribution to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in a short video clip! The Digital Storytellers synthesis project is now launched and provides information, training, equipment and support for participatory filmmaking.

​Most of the r4d projects were designed prior the agreement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. With their approaches to produce high quality and development-relevant knowledge the r4d programme is convinced that the r4d projects have a lot to tell about how research contributes to achieve some of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The r4d researchers are invited to document how their r4d project contributes to the SDGs in short video clips. An experienced filmmaker team from Paitití Lab External Link Iconprovides training, equipment and support. Researchers from all career stages of all 57 r4d projects are encouraged to become part of this participatory, audiovisual storytelling project.
