United Nations and YouTube Creators for Change: Observance of the International Day for Tolerance
16 Nov 2018 -  This UN observance of the International Day for Tolerance will feature a screening of international short films from YouTube’s 2018 Creators for Change programme. There will be a panel discussion on tolerance and the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), as well as a live musical performance. At a time when the Internet is criticized for fuelling division and distrust, this event will demonstrate how it can be used to create positive social impacts.  
YouTube Creators for Change​ spotlights inspirational creators who use YouTube’s global reach to change conversations around tough issues and make a positive impact on the world.  From combating hate speech, to countering xenophobia and extremism, to making the case for greater tolerance and empathy toward others, the YouTube creators, from over sixteen countries, are helping generate positive social change among their global fan bases.
