Digital storytelling shows how the efficient implementation of media can enhance the presentation, delivery and distribution of content. Abstract or complex topics that require explanation can be expressed in convincing, understandable and unique ways using methods of digital storytelling. A narrative becomes a digital story by combining audio recordings, images and/or film elements.

This workshop will portray the development of individual digital stories on topics related to the conference theme. It will demonstrate how a story can be presented in just two to three minutes, in approximately 250 words, and still achieve the intended effect. The stories will deal with certain aspects of sustainable economics, such as human rights, working conditions and environmental concerns.

The main objective of the workshop is to inform the audience about the hardware and software typically used for digital storytelling and to introduce the methodology alongside its technical realization. Participants will be able to follow the entire procedure, from the original idea to the final product, thereby gaining detailed insight into the methods of digital storytelling.
