Tips for recording your video (60 seconds maximum) 

  1. Record in a well-lighted place, making sure the person who’s going to speak isn’t in the shade. 
  2. Test the sound. Film for a few seconds and listen to the video to make sure the sound was good. If it isn’t, get closer to the person. Make sure there are no noises around you or other people speaking at the same time. 
  3. The video will be cut to a square (1:1) format. Whether you film horizontal or vertical, make sure that the person is always in the center of your frame. 
  4. Ask the person to repeat the question as she/he starts answering your question so that the viewers will know what she/he is going to be talking about right away. 

Share your video on your social media account with the hashtags #LearningNeverStops #CitiesOfLearning #RegionsOfLearning and tag @UNESCO.  Please note: hashtags do not work on Facebook. So it’s better if you upload your video on Youtube or Facebook (with tag) and then reshare on Instagram, Linkedin, Youtube, Twitter, TikTok using the hashtags
