Marked from November 25 until December 10, the “16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence” is a campaign aiming at raising awareness and increasing the momentum to end violence against women and girls around the world.
Each year, the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) partners with The Arab Institute for Women (AiW) to mark the event with a social media campaign and a regional youth art competition centered around a specific theme.
This year, both institutes chose to focus on the links between climate change and violence against women and girls under the title “Ending violence against women and climate change: What does environmental equality look like?”
The competition will allow all youth from the region under the age of 30 to express themselves and raise their voices through all art forms, including painting, video, photography, poetry, music, and other forms of art.
Those who wish to participate can submit their entries here before December 1, 2022.
The winners will be presented and showcased at a live event at the Lebanese American University (LAU) – Beirut campus on December 9, 2022.
