It has become the common task of all the countries in the region, including India and the Nepal, to build towards a harmonious South Asia. Politically, all countries in the region should respect each other and pursue compatibility while preserving diversity.

Interaction on minimising drug using amongst youth community

26 October, 2014 Kathmandu

 

The prevalence case of Nepal in drug using by young people is at alarming rate. The connection between youth and drug abuse raises several questions, like: Why are young people at risk of drug abuse? Why do young people use drugs? What is wrong with doing drugs when people have been doing them for centuries? We will try and answer some of these questions, but we need to start with the basics?

While it is difficult to give an accurate picture of the extent of drug abuse among youth because of the severe lack of information, we can look at smaller samples of young people in Nepalese society for some indication of the direction youth culture is taking.

To know this ground reality, Youth Forum Nepal is organizing a one-day workshop amongst youth expert and rehabilitated drug users on how to minimize the attraction of drug using. The venue of workshop will be on United World Trade Centre Building (UWTC) at Tripureshwor on 26 December 2010.

To participate in workshop, kindly enroll your name by contacting the following :
1. Ms. Srijana Banskota, Communication Executive: programs@youthforum.org.np
2. Mr. Bijay Bist, Chairperson, bijay.bist@gmail.com

Climate Change Speech Competition

9 August 2014, Kathmandu

 

In Nepal, as in any other least developed country, Climate Change issue is a priority only to the extent that it is reflected in the national development objectives in relation to protection of the environment and sustainable development. Therefore, unless the context of Climate Change is integrated and linked to the national development goals, priority cannot be attached to it, and hence programs related to Climate Change will not attract adequate attention. It is necessary to link Climate Change issues to Nepals long- term development goals - poverty reduction, economic growth and employment, increased self-reliance, promotion of rural development, and preserving the environment.

Climate change is a great project to get young people inspired, informed and switched on to the climate issue. Young people are worried about climate change and how it will affect the world they grow up in. They will have to live with the consequences if we fail to take action. There are many ways that young people can protect the planet like recycling, walking to school and not leaving their computers on standby.

Therefore, Youth Forum Nepal would like make a college-wise speech competition on Climate Change issue for Nepal. The competition is open to all colleges situated at Kathmandu Valley. The proposed date of the speech competion is 15 February 2011. A expert panel of judges will be there to finalise the winners. First, Second and Third winner will be announced and four more youths will be given consolation prizes.

To know how to participate at this competition, kindly contact Mr. Pralhad Giri at 98510-65750 or mail simply at programs@youthforum.org.np

IINDO NEPAL Workshop on strengthening harmonious relationship and combating cross border terrorism with peace building initiatives

October 5, 2013, Birgunj

 

A harmonious world can never be realized without the building of harmonious regions. South Asia is an example of this point. It has become the common task of all the countries in the region, including India and the Nepal, to build towards a harmonious South Asia. Politically, all countries in the region should respect each other and pursue compatibility while preserving diversity. India and Nepal have to mutually understand each other's security interests and arrive at amicable solutions bilaterally marking areas of agreement and diffusing areas of disagreement.

The workshop is aimed to attend MPs of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh of India, totaling 2 each of the states and 4 MPs from Nepal. In addition, the local political leaders of border side from India (Bihar & UP) with Nepal's Madheshi leaders will have their participation at the workshop. Likewise participants from the Government (national, regional, and district and community level), NGOs and CBOs, responsible police officers, National Commissions and the UN System represented in Nepal will also honor the workshop as the key participants. All in all, the total number of participants will be under 55 to 60.

The workshop will recognise cross border terrorism as the external factor influencing the Indo-Nepal relations and analyses their inter-relationship. The linkage between the domestic politics of each country and their external relations and its impact on the erosion of the security arrangements will get a thorough discussion.

The workshop will also analyse the changing threat perceptions from changing political system of monarchy to constitutional republican Nepal after the Maoist insurgency and Terai movement. However the changing global and regional political scenario does not undermine the geostrategic realities. It also takes into cognizance the political, socio-economic and trade relations between India and Nepal.

Hon'ble Umakant Chaudhary, Minister of Government of Nepal will deliver the key note speech.

This workshop is being co-ordinated by Parmanand Gupta at Birgunjj. You can give a call to him to know more about this at 98450-92612 .
