Democracy Through My Eyes
The World Movement for Democracy and alumni of the Hurford Youth Fellowship have invited youth democracy activists from around the world to share pictures that represent democracy in their communities. Some photos illustrate moments of how young people share their opinions. Others highlight the democratic challenges young people face in their community. The Democracy Through My Eyes gallery aims to encourage young people to explore how photography and art can be used as a story-telling method to strengthen democracy activism.
