Project ID 537RAS3000

This project is the first new project to be launched under the UNESCO Bangkok's Together for Peace (T4P) Initiative and aims to promote digital story-telling in indigenous and mother-tongue languages of Asia. The stories will be developed by young indigenous people through dialogue with elders and communities from their ethnic groups, and will enhance understanding and awareness of traditional knowledge and practices as they relate to peace and sustainable development. It will provide a practical example of action for T4P.
