University on Youth and Development

As a founding member of the Media Team at the University on Youth and Development, I had the honor of leading it for ten consecutive years, contributing to creative concept development, filming, audio and video capture, editing and post-production, as well as multimedia authoring.

The University on Youth and Development is committed to fostering discussion, education, and exchange of experiences related to global youth cooperation, a concept that has emerged from youth movements worldwide in response to the challenges of globalization. This unique event provides an important space for this mission in partnership with intergovernmental, governmental, civil society, and local and regional representatives.

The UYD Media Team, consisting of three to five young media producers, supports each participating organization. The team's objectives include ensuring that individuals of all backgrounds and abilities have access to constructive media for self-expression, producing media with ethical standards that benefit both individuals and organizations, promoting teamwork and advanced skill development through cooperative activities, and fostering intercultural dialogue. The media team, composed of UYD participants (typically 3-5 young media creators), utilizes media and audiovisual tools to support each organization's efforts to fully and authentically express themselves.

During my tenure as the Media Team leader, I gained valuable experience in managing people, handling stress, practicing patience, and working within limited resources while producing content. Although I am no longer involved, the Media Team continues to exist with new members who carry on its work.
