The corona crisis has created new opportunities in doing monitoring and evaluation on a different way. Due to travel restrictions in crisis situations remote monitoring and evaluation becomes a more common practice.  The availability of mobile devices, internet applications and virtual conference meeting tools enable MEAL (Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning) professionals to do participatory data collection and analysis involving the voice of communities and other key actors. Remote participatory video is a process, that is facilitated online. The facilitators guide the community filmmakers from a distance to direct their own film or photo-voice story and capture their stories remotely through virtual means. Therefore Facili2transform offers a webinar (free of charge) and two five-day online courses about Remote Participatory Video and Video/ Photo voice production documenting ‘ most significant change stories’.

When in April and March, 2020 half of the world was going through a lock down and people had to work from home due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Ralf Otto and Simon Koolwijk facilitated a remote participatory filmmaking process remotely from their homes. Refugees living in Germany, Turkey and Uganda were guided in filming and interviewing themselves on how the Covid-19 epidemic had impacted their lives. Experiences about this process will be shared during an interactive webinar.  Watch the teaser of Remote PV – <Together in Times of Covid-19>.
