About Us

The Mayors Make Movies initiative will create partnerships between mayors, up-and-coming filmmakers in different African cities, to produce short films (2 – 3 min) that feature the role of and initiatives by city mayors, local issues and solutions from different water users, and highlight principles of water governance. The initiative aims to:

  • Raise the profile of Mayors, and create a platform for inter-mayoral/inter- city partnerships, mayor-to-mayor networks in water governance
  • Produce content that can reach a wider audience, specifically use to encourage greater participation in water-related issues and solutions
  • Promote good water science and policy communication that can reach different people
