Speak to our leaders
Great expectations: Recommendations by the youth
Ladies & gentlemen, can you please take your seats?
It’s time to bring the Voice of the Youth to the stage!
A great thank you to Marina, Jeison, Kevin, Grainne, Ngheim and Mubaraq who took part in the IACC Youth Challenge to speak to our leaders. The importance of the theme of this years IACC was underpinned by the great response to the conference theme. We’re delighted that so many received so many people voted for all the participants!
With a whopping 80+ thumbs up, congratulations to Ms. Nghiem Thi Loan of the Foreign Trade University Ha Noi. Ngheim’s popular video will be screened in front of the closing plenary session entitled “Restoring trust: Global action for transparency” where Paul Collier, Robert Greenhill, Jorge Hage Sobrinho, Georg Kell, Elena Panfilova, Ingrid Srinath, Dimitri Vlassis and Cobus de Swardt will be presented with Nghiem’s video. We are very much looking forward to hearing how the IACC plenary speakers respond to Nghiem’s recommendation.
How can the youth participate and ensure involvement in the fight against corruption? Stay tuned to find out! How can we all be anti-corruption ambassadors?
Stay tuned for more, the session will be live screened from 16:00 – 18:00 Bangkok local time on 13 November (UTC/GMT +7 hours). Keep an eye on http://14iacc.org/social/live-streaming/ to see the session and check out our new blog ! http://14iacc.org/social/
Upload your video, it’s easy!
Corruption affects us all
It is important to tell the people in power what really matters when it comes to fighting corruption. And this is why we have developed this space for you:
We want your voice to be heard when decision-makers take the stage at the IACC plenary panels and discuss corruption challenges at this forum for fighting corruption. For the first time ever, this will happen at this IACC, in November in Bangkok.
And we want decision-makers to comment on your questions.
So, here’s how it goes:
1. Have a think about your take on corruption. What are your concerns? If you had the ear to some of the most inspirational leaders on the planet, what would you say to them?
2. Use your phone, camera or webcam to capture your thoughts and share them with us. Make a short film (no more than 20 seconds!). Ask a question or give a recommendation to our leaders. Your comments should be related any of the five carefully selected Global Challenges of the IACC.
Don’t forget, the Global Challenges are:
- Corruption, peace and security
- Fuelling transparency and accountability in the natural resources and energy Markets
- Climate governance: Ensuring a collective commitment
- Strengthening global action for an accountable corporate world
- And last but not least, the conference theme:
Restoring trust: Global action for transparency
Your video can be in English, French, Spanish or Thai – we will provide a translation if necessary
3. Click on the blue “I’m ready, upload my video” tab, input your details and upload your contribution through a popular format. You can upload .mov, .avi, .wmv, .mpg and .mpeg files. The maximum video file size 6mb.
4. Have a look at other video contributions, and vote on them. Just scroll through the videos on this page and give your thumbs up to the videos you like best. Tell all your friends about the fight against corruption and invite them to vote for your video message.
Until when can I participate?
It’s best you participate now; but you can upload videos until 10 November. The sooner your video is live, the more votes you are likely to get! We’ll be sharing the results with you via Twitter, Facebook and the 14th IACC blog.
What happens next?
Once the file is uploaded we will take a few hours to compress the format and then show it on this space. Please bear with us and come back to the site in a few hours to see your video. Be patient, it may take some time but we’ll do our best to upload the your video in a jiffy!
Is there a prize?
Yes! The most popular video contributions (those with the most thumbs up) will be reviewed by our editorial committee. One short film will be chosen per IACC Global Challenge and screened to kick-start the high level plenary discussions at the 14th IACC. The most popular videos will speak to our leaders – this is your prize.
The winners will become the first ever IACC Young Ambassadors.
“Youth Challenge”, is there an age limit?
Anyone under 36 years old is welcome to participate.
I heard a rumour that there are more prizes, is this true?
For now this is indeed a rumour, but keep an eye on this space and we hope to have some good news soon!
