Peace Designer’s Table Online Program was held in the Latin America Region

On May 9th, the first day of the Peace Designer’s Table Online Program was held. On this day, 81 teams were created, in which 67 of them developed peace projects that supported the United Nations SDGs. The staff team had 12 monitors who assisted the participants in the execution of the first stages and two young leaders who taught guiding the participants accordingly.

The workshop, held online for the first time, had three weeks of preparation and a lot of effort in communication to reach the 300 participants through the Zoom video conferencing platform and the more than 1,000 viewers on the live broadcast via Facebook. Young people from Latin American countries participated in the workshop and started the development of their projects. The audience consists of 30% new participants.

The second stage of the Peace Designer’s Table was held on May 16 and included two speakers who explained the next steps in the elaboration of a project and provided guidance on how to give presentation in the S!NERGY Online public-speaking program.

On May 23, the first S!NERGY Online 2020 was held. More than 2,000 people watched the presentations of the projects from the online Peace Designer’s Table workshop that took place during the previous two weeks. The event was broadcasted on the Zoom video conference platform, where 250 people were connected participating in S!NERGY, and Live on Facebook where it reached 2,300 views.

The event was divided into three parts. The first part was conducted with the presentation of the 10 best projects prepared by participants from Brazil. In the second part, the 10 best projects were presented from other countries in Latin America. Both events were evaluated by judges that consisted of VIPs and Ambassadors for Peace. Finally, the third part allowed for projects that were not selected as the top 10 to be exposed, so their ideas could be evaluated by judges. These projects could have their presentation sent by video or exposed live at the event.

About 20 videos were sent for evaluation. In all, 31 projects were presented at the event that lasted six hours. The first S!NERGY Online 2020 proved to be a success, inciting positive

impressions from participants. And finally, on May 25, the winners of the S!NERGY Online 2020 took place. Twelve teams, out of 65, were selected and awarded. Six teams from Brazil and six from other Latin American countries.
