OneMinutesJr workshop in Astana - Day 1

Young people from all over Kazakhstan have gathered in the capital Astana this week to participate in a OneMinutesJr video workshop. They all were selected by UNICEF Kazakhstan to be part of an exciting project that will take place in the Central Asian country throughout the summer.

UNICEF is conducting a regional consultation with children and adolescents to find out more about the issues of the young generation, their dreams and their problems. A group of teenagers - the VJs - will follow the process with cameras while another group will work as facilitators. The results will be shown during a conference later in the year that will round up the consultation and give recommendations for the Kazakh government on how to address the young people's issues.

The OneMinutesJr workshop this week will train the VJs in video-making and will at the same time show the facilitators what is needed to organize the shooting of a proper film. The first step, as always, is developing good story ideas. On the first day of the training, this is the main priority and most of the participants already have interesting ideas after the first brainstorming session.
