This is an online guide for community projects that includes video lectures, interviews with local experts, a printable practical guide, and tasks for every lesson.

Opening Animation for the World Conference ICPD
Working with UNFPA and FP2020 we developed an animation to kick off the 25th International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) summit in Nairobi as well as a series of timelines that visualizes the history of family planning. Our role was to develop a storyboard based on a script provided to us along with the production and creation of the animation. We also created the design of the timeline that displayed the history of FP2020 from its inception to the present.
