DokuFest has teamed up with UN Kosovo Team, UNICEF Kosovo Programme and IPKO Foundation to bring “Visioning the 2045” Advocacy for Change PODIUM as part of UN75 global dialogue initiative.
During the Podium experience, planned to be held during the 19th edition of DokuFest, young people will learn to find ways to raise awareness about issues that matter to them and their community and learn how to collaborate with duty bearers to push issues that concern them into their agendas.
Podium: Advocacy for Change workshop teaches adolescents and youth of the most marginalized groups in Kosovo how to advocate for the needs and rights of their communities. It is an initiative designed to improve the resilience of adolescents and youth by increasing the knowledge of their rights, improving their awareness on the power of social change and advocacy; and cultivating campaign management and advocacy tactics – all while improving confidence and empowerment.
