We heard from our Communications Team for an interactive session where we discussed key takeaways from the UN’s latest report and shared resources such as an op-ed writing guide, blog posts, and tips on talking with others about population issues.
We partnered with YUWA, a youth-run organization working to promote youth participation through empowerment and advocacy. We learned about the state of SRHR in Nepal, along with the work that YUWA does to improve the status of SRHR for young people. The youth presenters also touched on YUWA’s active citizenship department’s recent engagement in climate and environmental issues in their community.
