Digital Youth Festival 2021 - Engaging young people across Scotland and Malawi to lead the conversation on Race & Equality and Climate Change.
Engaging young people across Scotland and Malawi to lead the conversation on Climate Change, and Race and Equality
The 2021 Scotland Malawi Partnership Digital Youth Festival was a week of engaging online events and activities reaching over 250,000 people. The programme was designed by young people, to inspire and support more young people in Scotland and Malawi to engage in our historic partnership. Centering around the key themes of Climate Change, and Race and Equality, the week was provoking, challenging and inspiring.
Events included a range of youth-led webinars, podcasts, competitions and the launch of our brand new Youth Committee-run Instagram @scotmalawiyouth. For schools, we recognised the immense challenges faced this year, and are offering a showcase of commissioned Global Education resources from specialist partners, and teacher training, to use anytime throughout 2021. All schools are welcome to get involved from Scotland and Malawi, whether you have an existing link or not.
Running from 15-19th March, the week was both a celebration of our countries' relationship, and a deeper look into some of the complex issues that underlie it.
