Young Ones 2020: Merit
To pick up your phone and film an assault is the new type of bystander effect. A behavior that might seem awful, but is actually human. It gives people the feeling of doing something in the situation - not just being passive. The risk though, is that nobody calls the police in time. We want to turn this behavior into a moment of taking action and break the spell of passiveness. An initiative for a update in the mobile operating systems that hopefully could be picked up by mobile companies to help the users to use their phones right in stressful situations. We want to communicate this through the heartbreaking stories of young people that didn’t get help in time.
