Join UNESCO’s photo and video contest “If I were…” !

if you were someone else ... what would your life be like? Have you ever imagined stepping into someone else’s shoes? What if that person was living next door? How would you feel? UNESCO’s photo and video contest for youth “If I were…” invites you to imagine yourself in someone else’s shoes through a powerful video clip or photo. The idea is to illustrate your feelings if you were this person, change your perspectives and express yourself differently. Develop your ability to empathize and leave behind your prejudices!
