_I0A2470 (Large)Behind each story there is another story. Our stories are connected. So is the story about the Mongolian herders connected with Udval, a young leader supporting herder communities in Western Mongolia. Udval uses participatory video to give the herders voice and to support their sharing and learning. Soyolmaa Dolgor, communication specialist working for SDC Mongolia, travelled with Udval to Tsetseg soum, Khovd province to document her meeting with the herders’ community.

The young female leader supports herders’ communities by using participatory video

Udval, a young female leader, supports herders’ communities. She uses participatory video to give the herders voice and to support reflection and collaboration for sustainable rangeland management. Soyolmaa Dolgor, communication specialist working for SDC Mongolia, travelled with Udval to Tsetseg soum, Khovd province to document her meeting with the herders’ community. The herders’ community has built jointly a khashaa, a warm winter shelter for livestock and shares.

Read more about the participatory video approach on the SDC Mongolia Website, a great example of how to use a participatory video approach to support learning and sharing in communities.

    Dear Soyolmaa
    Congratulations! These are two lovely stories, I love them both, both are relevant, and both are beautiful. The art of storytelling starts with finding the story. Marc Schenk from Anecdote, a great storyteller in the context of business, told me not so long ago: Storytelling starts with spotting stories. That’s what you did and that is what Udval is doing. So please keep spotting and sharing great stories.
    Best, Nadia
