New: The WISIONS YouTube Channel
News from WISIONS posted on August 17th, 2015
Over the course of the last few years, many of our project partners have documented their work and achievements in the form of videos to accompany their written reports. While some of our partners maintain their own YouTube channels, many of these videos have not yet been published.
These videos will now be shared on the WISIONS YouTube channel. Around six videos from different projects are already online, and we will constantly update our library with new submissions.
