We are thrilled to share the news that Break the Bias created by IEARN-India youth has been selected for the upcoming MY World 360º playlist, to be screened September 24 and 25 at the United Nations during the UN General Assembly. 

 

Young 360° film creators from 24 countries submitted 76 media projects for consideration for the third MY World 360º playlist. The collection includes youth voices from Argentina, Brazil, Hong Kong, India, Kenya, Uganda, and the United States, with a focus on Goal 13 (Climate Action) and Goal 10 (Reducing Inequalities). The stories allow viewers to examine issues of climate and inequality in settings that range from the Amazon rainforest, to the largest dumpsite in Eastern Africa, to the bustling Sham Shui Po neighborhood in Hong Kong.  

 

Break the Bias will be part of a playlist of nine 360º films to be screened at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on September 24th and 25th, during the High-level Political Forum (HLPF) under the 74th Session of the General Assembly Accelerating the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The event is the first UN summit on the Sustainable Development Days (SDGs) since the adoption of the 2030 Agenda in September 2015, where Heads of State and Government from around the world will gather to follow up and comprehensively review progress in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 SDGs.
