Voice for Change: Creating an inclusive development agenda in the Post-2015 context
There is a growing interest among global civil society and state actors on how to decide what should replace the Millennium Development Goals after 2015. The United Nations announced a 27-member High-level Panel to advise on the post-2015 global development framework. At the same time, organisations across the world have been reaching out to poor and marginalised people to make their voices heard before the policies determining their fate are framed.
Through participatory videos, digital story-telling and action research, Praxis has integrated voices of excluded and marginalised communities on their aspirations for an equitable world in the post-2015 development framework. The initiative, called the Voice For Change, aims at creating spaces for direct interactions between marginalised groups and policy-makers and those who effect change, as well as similar communities across the world. You can read in detail about the Voice For Change initiative here.
Participatory Video Processes with Marginalised communities
Praxis has facilitated participatory video processes with members of several marginalised communities across the country to feed into the post-2015 development debates. The films can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/user/PraxisIndia. Read more about the Voice for Change initiative of Praxis
