Kathmandu, 10 May 2018- Calling all young innovators to apply to be crowned the fourth Glocal Teen Hero!

Celebrating the innovative efforts of young Nepalis in using their skills and creativity to create positive waves in society, the Wai Wai Glocal Teen Hero award—an initiative by Glocal Khabar, in which UNDP is a strategic partner—is moving into its fourth year.

This time around, the Glocal 20 Under 20 programme hopes to reach teenagers (13-19 years of age) all across the country, for which the team is set to visit 28 destinations around Nepal-- Dhangadhi, Mahendranagar, Nepalgunj, Baglung, Butwal, Bhairahawa, Janakpur, Jhapa, Biratnagar, Lahan, and Pokhara apart from the Kathmandu Valley—and interacting with students from over 400 schools!

Six outstanding teenagers will be shortlisted from applications received for the final round on the basis of the quality and impact of their work, and a five-member jury will crown the winner at a ceremony to be held on 1 September 2018. On the same day, Glocal will also be hosting an International Teen Conference, bringing together young people from India, Bangladesh, Jamaica, Vietnam, Ghana and many other countries to discuss and address issues relevant to them.

Deadline for applications: 31 July 2018
