In an initiative that is pro-social, The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), MTV Asia and Levi's brand are jointly organising a campaign in which 11 young Asians (from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, The Philippines, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan and Taiwan) will get a chance to represent their peers and present an `Asian Youth Charter' at the United Nations later in the year.
The project aims at encouraging young citizens of Asia to voice their concerns and exchange their views with peers on issues close to their hearts. Interested candidates can join the competition via the Internet or by mail. The last date for the entries to be sent is February 28, which should also contain a proposal on how to make the world a better place for young adults and the answer to: what does UN stand for? United Nations, Unlimited Nations or Unique Nations. An `Asian Youth Charter' will be consolidated from the entries received together with the views expressed on air by the youth interviewed by MTV camera crews. In March, 11 youngsters will be chosen to present the charter at the UN. One can write to www.mtv-asia.com, www.mtvindia.com, www.mtv.co.kr, www.mtv-china.com, www.mtvchinese.com, www.unicef.org and levi.com with views. Postcards, specially designed for the campaign, are available at Original Levi Stores and select partner outlets.
