2017 PLURAL+ Award Winners Announced at UN HQ

On Thursday (09/11) the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) celebrated young filmmakers from around the world at the 2017 PLURAL+ International Youth Video Festival and Awards at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.

Ambassador William Lacy Swing, the Director General of IOM, the UN Migration Agency, described the PLURAL+ winners, in his opening remarks, as “powerful agents with great potential to address toxic migrants’ narrative in which migrants are seen often in a negative light.” He further elaborated that “[…] through PLURAL+, UNAOC and IOM sought to help to empower youth to deal with the challenges and the opportunities relative to migration through embracing diversity and social inclusion.”

The ceremony began with the screening of the PLURAL+2017 International Jury Awards Ceremony. The three videos focused on combatting hate speech (Eliminate Hate, Eliminate Borders, Mexico), the need to respect human rights regardless of gender (Aibek, Kazakhstan), and the importance of diversity (Child of All Nations, Indonesia).
