Participatory Video: a visual tool to empower communities on decision-making

Participatory Video (PV) is a training technique in filming skills to support a group or community in shaping and creating their own stories.

The idea behind PV is that making a video is accessible and a creative way of bringing people together to explore issues, voice concerns or find solutions.

The PV process can be very empowering, enabling a group or community to take action to solve their own problems or to communicate their needs and ideas to decision-makers and other groups or communities. It can be a highly effective tool to engage and mobilise marginalised people and to help them implement their own forms of sustainable development based on local needs.
