Youth + Media: Champions for a Sustainable, Peaceful World

About the Summit

For the second time in the 14 years of IYMS history, the main event is coming back to Nepal, this time in Pokhara, the city of lakes. As the 11th IYMS held in Kathmandu took a historic turn for IYMS which was organized in Asia for the first time, Nepal is welcoming the IYMS in 2019 again and this time in Nepal’s paradise for tourists, Pokhara.

IYMS 2019 is expected to gather more than 70 delegates including young filmmakers and media enthusiasts from all over the world. At the end of the Summit, the young delegates from more than 30 different countries will screen Public Service Announcements (PSAs) about the 7 major global issues along with a short film based on this year’s theme.
