IMPACT

impactImpact videos are inspirational stories of bottom-up change that document how community media has led to concrete change. VV teaches Correspondents not just to report, but also to initiate local campaigns, and approximately 1 in 5 videos manages to solve the underlying issue. How? By providing information, rallying people to believe collective action works, networking with other activists, fostering community-level discussion through screenings and discussion clubs, and acting as a bridge to the local administration, which is often unaware of people’s problems. When necessary, Video Volunteers will start petitions, lobby the state or national administration, or engage the media in order to bring about the change.
