VolunTube World

VolunTube is a project funded by the Erasmus+ programme, which offers the possibility to 16 youngsters within 18 and 30 years old, to learn about storytelling, photography and especially video-making.
They receive a two weeks training, and then they are sent to some hosting partner organizations for a two months time span, where they have to produce content upon several topics such as environment, human rights and gender equality, with the ambitious mission to inspire others to take action in activism and volunteering.

Below, the personal experience videos of the four volunteers I had the opportunity to follow closely: Charlotte and Elodie from France to Peru; Estrela and Diogo from Portugal to Colombia.

All the videos of the participants are available here

The other volunteers and the whole coordination of the project was in the hands of my precious collaborators from all over the world, whom I thank for trying always to overcome the problems, travels, family matters and humour, where applicable.

The second edition ended up in the beautiful setting of La Buona Terra in Passignano sul Trasimeno (ITA) with the final evaluation of the project, where the VolunTubers and the communication officers of the organizations involved had the chance to complete the last audiovisual content and analyze the whole project from the scratch.

My utter thankfulness go to my closest collaborators Mario, Joe and Simone; to the officers I shared the most of work Tony and Jona, and to the closest volunteers I shared the most of life in Peru and Colombia… Guys and girls, it was a pleasure and a blast!
Last but not least, thanks to the whole network of associations which made it possible: Kora, IDC, Quinta das Relvas, GREAT, Brigada de Voluntarios Bolivarianos, Fix in Art, Casa B, CYA.
