Some contribute at an international scale (such as on the youth, peace, and security or YPS agenda and UN advocacy): others work at a local level, making change within their communities. What could atrocity prevention look like in the Philippines? Flow can atrocity prevention work even during the COVID-19 pandemic?  This contest is an opportunity for young people to share their views.
