Canon Europe takes its Young People Programme to the next level





Canon Europe has announced that following a number of successful activities to engage young people across Europe on visual storytelling, its Young People Programme enters a new stage.


This will involve offering a series of interactive workshops to young students in which they will be encouraged to take photos or videos of subjects that relate to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and express their views on the need for change. The aim is to show the power of visual storytelling and raise awareness of the need to deliver the 17 SDGs, which were created to eliminate poverty, protect the planet and achieve prosperity for all.

Xavier Longan, European Officer-in-Charge at the United Nations SDG Action Campaign said, “Engaging young people and giving them the tools they need to tell their stories and raise their voices is critical to make sure we make the 17 Sustainable Development Goals a reality by 2030. We are confident this programme will inspire creativity, raise awareness on the importance of the Goals and encourage people to take action."
