Call for Entries: Youth Resilience and Climate Change Poem Competition
Theme: ‘Our Action Now– Our Future, Our Resilience’
The Pacific Resilience Partnership (PRP) through the Pacific Island Forum Secretariat (PIFS), Resilience team invites young artist and poets from Pacific Island Countries and territories to submit an original Poem around the Theme ‘Our Action Now– Our Future, Our Resilience’.
The theme acknowledges that we all have a role to ensure our future is secure and resilient as emphasized through the Framework for Resilient Development in the Pacific (FRDP) – the overarching regional framework for climate change and disaster risk management. It builds on the ongoing work through the Pacific Resilience Partnership (PRP) Youth Hub, the 2019 Pacific Resilience Meeting (PRM) theme of Youth Futures in a Resilient Pacific and the 2021 PRM Theme of Our people, Our journey: nurturing Pacific resilience from home further acknowledging that building resilience starts with our people, our home and our communities. With at least half of the Pacific region’s population under the age of 25 years, these activities aim to elevate our Pacific youth voice and participation in resilience actions as a means to ensure that they are part of the solution to the issues of climate change and disaster risk and as part of securing their resilient future.
The top poems will be featured at the Pacific Resilience Meeting and other resilience and climate related forums under PIFS and PRP.
