Each team must select 1 theme from the United Nations 17 Goals to Transform the World list: First, research the specific UN theme and develop an original script to demonstrate local and global examples of their selected issue. Then, the team must produce a 5-minute video to present their original script in audio/video format of choice: narrative skit, a short story, Kamishibai photo narrative, live performance, puppet show, a public service announcement, a documentary, interview, among others. Regardless of the format, the students must bring their video presentation to life with their voices.
