USFUCA, UNESCO Center for Peace and World Genesis Foundation invite youth around the world to take part in this year’s Multimedia Competition.

Unparalleled connectivity put youth in one of the greatest positions to bring much needed change to the world.

UNESCO’s mission is to mobilize the optimism of youth to respond to an acute world problem to serve others now. Last year, motivated participants from over 65 countries submitted over 600 projects in this highly rewarding contest.

2021 Question: “COVID-19 has tested Human Solidarity like nothing before. Based on your research, knowledge and experience, develop and submit, a Multimedia proposal / project that describes the lessons we have learned and how those lessons will shape our future. For example, our future in education, employment, development, or social aspects.”
