UNESCO student video contest

Paris campus MA IRD student, Hobinirina Razafindramaka, wins UNESCO student video contest

 

Unesco Hobinirina
Congratulations to Paris campus MA IRD student, Hobinirina Razafindramaka, winner of today’s #IPDCtalks student video contest.
She impressed an international panel of judges by answering “Powering Sustainable Development with Access to Information”:
  • Why is access to information the critical currency for us to survive in the modern world?
  • What should duty-bearers (governments, the media, and international organizations) play to protect and promote the right to access to information?
  • And what kind of impact does it have for a sustainable future, e.g. with regards to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals?”

    Hobinirina’s winning video will be shared on the official UNESCO social media channels which will reach millions of people worldwide.

    Bravo Hobinirina!

Born into a Methodist family in 1967, he converted to Catholicism in 1993 then became orthodox in 2006.

His invitation to rediscover traditional Aristotelian moral philosophy resounds powerfully across the Atlantic.
