Plural+ Youth Video Festival

PLURAL+ festival is a platform for young people to express themselves on key migration and diversity issues and reinforce the belief that youth are powerful and creative agents of social change in the world. The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations together with the International Organisation for Migration have launched a call for youth participation in Plural+ Youth Video Festival, inviting the world’s youth to submit original and creative videos focusing on PLURAL+ themes: migration, diversity, social inclusion, and the prevention of xenophobia.

  • Multiple youth may work together to make one video, as long as all members of the group are maximum 25 years of age.
