The Media Literacy and Sexual and Reproductive Health forum explored the impact and process of storytelling through Kissa Kahani, a project by Ci3 based out of Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. The day long forum wrestled with questions around the impact of storytelling, the efficacy of storytelling and media literacy efforts among adolescents and adolescent experiences, and the use of storytelling to advance adolescent wellbeing.
