Nº of Beneficiaries: 63.400 people

Ending date: Mar.2013


This project addresses the theme of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in an innovative manner. The primary goal is to disseminate the MDGs through the active participation of young people as vehicles for information, dissemination and applicability.


It comprises two stages: A Short Documentary Film Competition for young people and a showcase of MDG Documentary Cinema.


The competition was aimed at junior and senior school pupils whose ages ranged from 12 to 21 years and who were invited to make short films about the MDGs; the films should have the duration of 3 minutes and made using any kind of media (digital camcorders, mobile phones and others) might be used. The idea is that the young people should be able to encourage the creation of alternative areas for dialogue and debate and to contribute to a population that is more aware and better mobilised.

When the competition stage is over, the best short films will be screened at a Documentary Cinema Showcase which will visit schools, local authorities and other institutions, in order to reach a growing number of spectators.

This project is co-financed by the European Commission and the IPAD (Portuguese Development Support Institute).
