With the UNESCO’s Project Planner, taking action on those lofty ideas of yours has become easy. Especially if you have been ruminating over an idea towards improving the social economic condition of the youth in your community but implementation seems farfetched. It’s a fact that getting ideas into concepts which could be communicated to partners and beneficiaries could be a daunting task. Much momentum is required to transform thought into action. It must be crafted in words and represented with models. All complexities must be broken down into simplified pieces for it to be understandable. And that understanding would inspire action with optimal efforts.
For instance, you’ve been thinking of a social project that will empower the youth economically, tackling the issue of unemployment or school dropout. But the thought of how and where to start poses to be damn overwhelming. The tips you’ll discover in this new UNESCO’s Project Planner would be a huge help.
Once you identify a problem in your community, and you have an idea of the solution or tasks to perform in addressing it, you do not have to be a professional Project Manager to make it real. Use the digital project planning tool, called UNESCO’s Top Tips for Youth Action. In it, projects are broken into six phases:
- Phase one: Project identification and planning
- Phase two: Project budgeting
- Phase three: Project fundraising
- Phase four: Project implementation and coordination
- Phase five: Project communication and visibility
- Phase six: Project, monitoring, reporting and evaluation.
In each section, you will be guided with adequate definition of terms, identification of tasks and other basic information. You’ll be given tips to reflect on and keep in mind through the project. You will be prompted to supply answers to pertinent questions which help to clarify thought and inspire action.
Following each stage are links to divers resources, guidelines and tools leading to more robust details for in-depth exploration. It’s a co-created master plan by which you bring your ideas and the tool helps you to piece everything together in a well crafted project plan.
Amazingly, the tool was programmed not to store any data or content from users. Users are thereby advised to always back-up or export their work in order to forestall loss of data. By implication, lost data cannot be retrieved because it’s not registered in the UNESCO’s database. What this does is to take care of the concern about idea theft.
UNESCO’s Top Tips for Youth Action is a free online tool, easily accessible to youth all over the world on both desktop and mobile devices. Visit the UNESCO’s site to learn more about the Project Planner.
