OWSD Visions

OWSD Visions

OWSD VISIONS is an audiovisual empowerment program which took shape when the pandemic forced us to re-think the way we work and how we create. I used to travel  a lot to developing countries to film scientists’ stories. The idea of transferring my experience to local filmmakers around the world evolved naturally and as a matter of course.  Social networks make visual stories easy to share, mobile phones make them easy to film. But science story telling is more complicated. I felt that I could provide guidance on this subject.
This program aims to create a wide network of science storytellers around the world. Scientists’ stories in developing countries need to be told because they matter and they can make a difference to local communities and to global sustainable development.
The biggest challenge has been, and still is, to communicate with the filmmakers across such a distance. A distance that is not only physical, but often digital and represents the huge divide in internet.
