Kathmandu, April 19, 2017: YOUthVote Nepal, a collective campaign of youth organizations, is hosting POEM Marathon at Basantapur Durbar Square on 22 April.
The event is an open poem citation where interested youths can cite their poems focusing on the theme of Youth Leadership, Election, and Youth Candidacy.
The YOUthVoteNepal campaign was launched about a month ago to carry out advocacy on youths’ agendas during the upcoming local elections. As part of the campaign, memorandums have been submitted to various political parties to promote youth and women leadership for the upcoming local level elections, and not to mobilize school children during the electioneering. The campaigners have also been on delegations to National Human Rights Commission, Election Commission, and Central Child Welfare Board. Along with these activities, the campaigners have also staged a street play to raise awareness of the general public about the local election.
Do you also write poems, and love to share it with others? Then, why don’t you come join this POEM Marathon and help raise public awareness about the election?
Date: April 22, 2017
Time: 4:30-5:30 PM
Venue: Basantapur Durbar Square, Kathmandu
