We’ve had a couple of very busy weeks in the office! Everything has been about planning and preparing for the event we had this Monday. My task was to coordinate, produce material and make sure the venue looked the way we want to, ensure that people know what to say, and ensure that things flow smoothly. Despite testing everything a million times before the event I was nervous every time when clicking play on a new video and crossing my fingers that the projector wouldn’t suddenly explode, but it was a great success, not a single glitch! Lots and lots of fun.
We had speakers from the government, civil society and a video message from the EU Ambassador that we had filmed the week before, as the EU were our official partners in hosting this event.
The main highlight of the event was the launch of the CRC@25 video that we finalized just the week before. (read more about that, here).
I have been filming kids around the country the last couple of weeks, asking them three simple questions: “What do you love about Belize? What do you dislike about Belize? What do you want for the future?” We used these videos to mark out the different parts of the event, and guide the speakers – people loved them.
And in the end, we celebrated. Meet my UNICEF Belize Family!
There will be a video summarizing the event, it is currently in production phase, cant wait to see it. :)
