In this new episode,  Bart Vetsuypens who has been coordinating Comundos for over 8 years explains frequently asked questions about Comundos and shares the journey so far

Digital storytelling as a tool for empowerment. This is the goal of the Belgian non-profit organisation Comundos. The organisation provides media literacy courses for young people worldwide. ‘By letting people from the Global South make their own story, you relinquish control.’

“End all poverty in all its forms everywhere”

At the end of the lesson, the students will be able to.
1. Understand the concept of poverty in all its forms.
2. Understand what SDG1 advocates for.
3. Analyze a chart about the numbers of people living in extreme poverty over a period of time till the Covid-19 pandemic period.

I had the opportunity to work for three months as an intern at Comundos while coursing a Master of Educational Sciences at the Vrije Universiteit Brussels (VUB).

As Comundos we have been working with sustainable development goals (SDGs) for years. Short stories, made in a 4-day course on digital storytelling, gives an authentic view on what the ‘learner’ is ‘living’.  Comundos aims at helping youngsters and young adults to better develop their own identity, becoming more emancipated and growing a critical global awareness.
