Background and objectives
Requirements
Selected volunteers will help to transcribe a set of video interviews regarding human rights in Viet Nam. Each volunteer will work on a total length of footage around 10 minutes from 5 interviewees. The interviews will be edited into 1 single video to commemorate International Human Rights Day. Volunteers will be featured in closing credits. It helps to create an approachable and relatable voice of UN to build a strong relationship with the targeted youth population and raise awareness on human rights. Volunteers will work closely with UN Communications Officer and an on-site UNV in Communications. The final transcriptions will be reviewed by the Communications Specialist which volunteers could learn from the knowledge in translating/interpreting topics that need careful and sensitive handling.

UN Volunteers in Viet Nam is working with Human Rights Thematic Group of UN in Viet Nam to produce a video to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The UDHR empowers us all: It establishes the equal dignity and worth of every person. Ours is a shared humanity rooted in these universal values. We are inter-connected. These human rights that we have in common, solidarity with each other and fulfilment of human rights responsibilities are what bind us together on our shared planet. By celebrating the 70th Anniversary of Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the UN is standing up for human rights to ensure that no one is left behind.
