These short digital stories were created by 16 young global citizens aged 12-16 years.

All participants are of Chinese origin residing with their families in Dubai.

Through their videos, these incredible young individuals have explored and creatively expressed their lives, personal identities, cultures and thinking. In addition, the project also aims to connect the youth community of Dubai and recognise it as a truly dynamic international platform for young people to flourish in.

The 10 day workshop was mentored by London based design thinker Kelsang Dongsar and the Red Balloon team. Our thanks to Dan Wang for her support to make this workshop possible.
