Justice Transitionnelle

(Trouvez la description en français ci-dessous)
Cote D’Ivoire experienced a decade of civil war and political crises between 2002 and 2007. Following democratic elections in 2010, the capital erupted once more into ethnically motivated violence and the politicization of children and youth, both as victims and perpetrators of divisions and violence. There are to date few nonpartisan safe spaces for youth to engage in reflection about the past conflict and in constructive dialogue about their role and responsibilities in shaping Cote d’Ivoire’s future. See all the testimonies in full here.

Clubs Messagers de Paix

(Trouvez la description en français ci-dessous)
Cote D’Ivoire experienced a decade of civil war and political crisis between 2002 and 2011. Harmful political influence has infiltrated secondary schools through politicalized and violent students and teachers syndicates and gangs, making them increasingly dangerous environments for students and staff. To address this issue, the Ministry of Education introduced The Peace Clubs, at the end of the crisis in 2011 to promote peace in schools. They are a students led mechanism for conflict prevention and resolution. 


The Kavokiva Co-operative in Ivory Coast

In this participatory video project 12 cocoa farmers made a video, which focused on the negative impacts of deforestation. They succeeded in generating a video that carries the seldom heard voices of Ivorian cocoa farmers, and clearly demonstrates the problems that they are experiencing as a result of climate change. The completed video has the potential to raise awareness of how climate change is impacting on people in this region and may serve to generate interest in supporting efforts to mitigate these problems.


Participatory Video with Coffee Farmer Co-operatives in Nyeri, Kenya

In this participatory video project a team of coffee farmers identifies and documents sustainable land management practices through video, which could then be used to share knowledge locally, and potentially further afield. Participants were selected by the organisers from two neighbouring coffee co-operatives. InsightShare facilitators helped the group to identify the main threats to farmers, and look at changes in the local environment and weather. They produced a video, which was subsequently made into 3 short videos: ‘Climate Change’, ‘Land Management’ and ‘Land Subdivision’.


Participatory Video for Climate Change Adaptation, Angola

In June and July 2012, eleven farmers from the Cariango Commune in the province of Kwanza Sul, Angola, took part in a participatory video project to explore the impacts of climate change on their livelihoods. After much debate the group decided to focus on the issue of drought as something common to all, and to use the video to explore different ways in which it is impacting the four different communities, by gathering local ideas and stories.
