WHAT'S YOUR DREAM
Mi Chicca Producciones, Chile

WHAT’S YOUR DREAM? Many of us would say: PEACE! And I do agree! The clash between different cultural groups is one of the most crucial problems of our times. The new dimension of war and conflict in the world comes from prejudices. Prejudices create “the narcissism of the small difference” – and, often, they are nothing but the other side of our uncertainty. The prevention and fight against prejudices are at the heart of UNESCO’s programme-line “Intercultural Dialogue”. “WHAT’S YOUR DREAM?” is the fascinating journey to the insides of the Indian World throughout the life and dreams of Libko, a boy proud of his ethnicity. This journey is as poetic as ravishing. The spiritual strength of Libko’s life opens the space for personal experience and intercultural reflection. It opens up for change.

In the name of UNICEF

I SO BELIEVE YOU
Secretaria de Educación de Bogotá, Colombia

For over 20 years, UNICEF has been encouraging broadcasters to create programming that highlights children’s issues and rights, and ideally empowers children and young people through the medium of TV. The recipient of this year’s UNICEF Prize is a program that accomplishes what UNICEF has been pushing for. It is a program FOR kids, BY kids. It gives children a voice and puts them in front of the camera, without making them tokens or caricatures. This program provides a platform for a diversity of children to share what is important to them and what they want to change in their environment or society. It combines a fun, spirited atmosphere with serious issues, giving kids a chance to learn about the lives and situations of kids in other communities. It not only has children’s rights as the subject of its programs, through stories on safety, education, environment, health and quality of life, but the program also embodies two of the most important rights: the right to expression and the right to participation.
