Promotional video for "A LITTLE HISTORY OF MUSIC" series of classical music concerts that consists of a short journey through the history of music from the Baroque (17th century) to contemporary music (20th century). In a simple way, the musician and music teacher Ricardo Coelho presents some of the main characteristics of each era and tells curious stories about composers and other relevant characters of each era.

The primary objective of these presentations is to raise awareness and teach the general public about classical music. In these concerts, representative musical works from each era are played on the piano by Ricardo Coelho.

University on Youth and Development

The University on Youth and Development is a space for debate, training, exchange of experiences and affirmative action concerning Global Youth Cooperation. Global Youth Cooperation is a concept that has emerged from within the youth movement worldwide during the decade of nineties. It is young people and youth organisations collective response to the challenges of globalisation.

This University, with its partnership between intergovernmental, governmental, civil society and local and regional representatives, (reflecting the quadrilogue) and its diverse programme, provides a key space in performing that role.

The videos here presented are the result of the media team's work. The media team is composed by UYD participants (usually 3 to 5 participants / young media makers) that use media and audiovisuals as a tool to work in their associations. Besides covering the UYD activities, the media team aims:
  • Empower people with skills to use media, as a tool for their development and that of their communities;
  • Enable people of all a abilities and backgrounds to have access to a positive medium to express their thoughts, feeling and ideas;
  • Produce media products with ethical values, offering a non-compromised benefit to individuals, organizations and the wider community.
  • Learn about team work in a real intensive environment and develop higher-level skills by participating in a cooperative activity;
  • Promote intercultural dialogue.
I lead the media since the beginning and I have learned about human relations, stress management, patience and on how to manage groups and produce contents with the least available resources.

Video created with the UYD participants for the “Stand Up, Take Action and Make Noise for the Millennium Development Goals” 2010 campaign. The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are an eight-point road map with measurable targets and clear deadlines for improving the lives of the worlds poorest people. World leaders have agreed to achieve the MDGs by 2015.

The Stand Up was organized by the United Nations Millennium Campaign. The United Nations Millennium Campaign is a UNDP campaign unit in response to the Millennium Declaration signed by 189 member states. Established in October, 2002, it aims to increase support to achieve the Millennium Development Goals and seek a coalition of partners for action. The Millennium Campaign targets intergovernmental, government, civil society organizations and media at both global and regional levels.

The year 2010 was very special because it marked the tenth anniversary of the signing of the Millennium Declaration which created the MDGs.
