International Youth Media Summit

International Youth Media Summit IYMS is a yearly event which brings together teen filmmakers and diplomats from around the world to explore ways to inspire and empower their generation.
(8)

IYMS is an annual two-week event that brings together young people from different cultures to create media projects aimed at inspiring their own generation to take action and responsibility for the future. By confronting and examining global problems, and exploring solutions together, they are bound in a shared purpose. Working toward a common goal and being accountable for a concrete creative product within a limited time period provides the perfect "stew" for collaboration. Conflicts arise and must get resolved. Barriers of misunderstanding and ignorance are broken down, friendships emerge, creativity flows and films are produced. In the process, youth create a model for a peaceful yet dynamic, cooperative world community. Over the last ten years, more than 600 young delegates and their adult advisors representing 50 countries have participated in the IYMS. At each Summit, the delegates explore the power and impact of media to transform attitudes, behaviors and lives. They then apply their new awareness to the making of films about social issues that matter most to them. At the first Summit the delegates identified the most urgent global issues as follows: violence, discrimination, poverty, the environment, health, women’s rights and youth empowerment. The final products of each Summit include seven short films, each focused on finding a solution to one of these issues, and seven workshop guides, tools to accompany the films to stimulate dialogue and action in community settings around the world. The Summit experience enables youth to think globally while stressing the urgency of acting locally. When delegates return to their home countries, they screen the short films in their classrooms, clubs, or community centers and lead workshops to raise awareness. Over 10,000 people view these movies every year. Between summits, IYMS global members work together online and in-person to continue the mission of IYMS.

Mission: IYMS gives young people from around the world the opportunity to work beyond borders, collaborating on media projects and motivating one another to take action to shape the future.

Another actor shot from his home in Australia, and the director and post-production crew worked from their own homes in India. Featuring Evelyn Mary Seubert, Taha Khan & Mirko Grillini. Conceived in Canada by Ravisha Mall. Written and directed from India by Abhijit Das.

Dear IYMS members and friends,

For the past two and a half weeks, people in more than 100 cities on six continents have been protesting against discrimination, racial violence and police brutality. The International Youth Media Summit stands in solidarity with them.

Dr. Oliver T. Brooks, president of the U.S. National Medical Association said, “People are showing courage by protesting, not just worried about police brutality, but about getting a potentially fatal infection. So this just shows how this is different.” Research shows that an average of 1,000 people die every year at the hands of police in the U.S. Dr. Brooks calls this “a chronic pandemic year over year over year. There is a growing recognition that this just cannot continue.” Racially motivated violence is a global pandemic that affects all of our countries.

IYMS exists to create a unified force working for justice, peace and human rights around the globe. We believe this moment can be a turning point for our world to turn righteous outrage into concrete policies for change. In the USA, the voices demanding change are unrelenting and are making their way into government chambers.

We are most grateful for those in our IYMS family, and all of our friends, who are taking action with courage and determination. If you choose to protest, we urge that you do everything that you can to stay safe.

Marching is not the only way you can have your voices heard. Educate yourself, listen to others, join with online campaigns, donate to causes, become involved in your civil societies and if you can – vote!

Mohamed Sidibay was orphaned, kidnapped and forced to become a child soldier at the age of five. He transformed his life with education, becoming a spokesperson for UNESCO and the IYMS Global Ambassador for Children’s Rights and Education. In 2017 he told our Summit delegates in Sweden, “There are not more bad people than good; they are just more pro-active.”

We are determined to change that – and will be publishing event information about the 15th International Youth Media Summit in the coming week! 🥰
