Online video speech competition

5 December, 2020 - 5 December, 2020


4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

WPD Nepal organized a video contest to give young people from five different schools in Kathmandu a chance to reflect on the 16 Days theme and to make a video on the topic of ceasefires, gun violence, and GBV. The winning video entries were presented and discussed in a webinar organized later by WPD-Nepal. Teachers and students, who have been confined at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, reported that the contest gave them a welcome chance to be more active and think about arms control, and the students felt the ceasefire topic is so important that it should be shared with youth living in the rural areas along the Nepal-India border that have become a transit point for the illegal guns trade, and where many women have been affected by guns in their home
