Youth for Humanitarian Disarmament:
Advancing the goals of the Convention on Cluster Munitions
Together with the European Union, the Mexican Presidency of the Convention on Cluster Munitions invites young people, aged 18-29, to share your thinking, insights, and perspectives on the how the unacceptable harm caused by cluster munitions impacts lives and specifically:
- How cluster munitions impede progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals
- How educating youth about cluster munitions saves lives
- And how the international ban on the weapon contributes to humanitarian disarmament goals
Why A Youth Contest?
As indiscriminate weapons that impact communities for generations, cluster munitions overwhelmingly affect young people. Youth voices are essential then to eliminating this banned weapon. We invite you on 5 March to hear presentations on the impact of cluster munitions, by the International Committee of the Red Cross, Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining and Mines Advisory Group, as well as a message from a youth representative.
Join us to find out more on how you can use your voice to help save lives!
