Web Stories is a digital tool that allows users to create immersive and visually captivating stories in a format optimized for mobile devices. It provides a user-friendly interface and a range of multimedia options to enhance storytelling experiences.

What Makes this Tool a Great Storytelling Tool

Web Stories is an ideal tool for young people involved in the Youth4Change project because it offers an engaging and interactive platform for storytelling. With Web Stories, young storytellers can combine text, images, videos, and other multimedia elements to create impactful narratives that resonate with their audience. The mobile-friendly format enables wider accessibility, reaching a larger audience and potentially driving social change through compelling storytelling.

Example Use of this Tool for Storytelling

Web Stories are a visual medium. So when it comes to creating one, first think about what people will want to see and hear. Using the tool of your choice, edit and customize your Story just how you like it. Once you’re happy with your Story, you publish it to your own site, which generates a shareable link just like a blog post.
