Video production kick off Multi stakeholder process on improving bio diversity in Poland

Promuje Lodzkie, one of the project partners in the BIOGOV project which promotes bio-diversity in 8 European countries, produced in October 2018 a video of their first regional stakeholder group meeting. The participants had a chance to share their opinion on their role and possible contribution to the BIOGOV project as well as their diverse perspectives on regional biodiversity. During the meeting participants used techniques proposed by European project leader. First one called “Rich Picture” – which is some kind of picture, some kind of poster. This method involves stakeholders working together to draw a picture with their input on the project. During the meeting participants proposed to promote traditional fruit en horticultural practices, since this increases bio-diversity in the ecological system.  Watch the video;

We are using video in our M & E system!

Simon started working with us to train grantees in participatory video. Amazingly, with the first training week participants produced 5 stakeholder videos of 5 minutes each, and had shared these in support of community dialogue about basic service improvements. We were all impressed with the empowering effect of participatory video. With Simon's recommendations, we have started using the video content in our M & E system (behavior change and service improvement results).
