To keep ourselves healthy and cherish our families with the greatest gift of good health, We, as children, are happy to bring to your notice the series of panel discussions we are organizing from across many different countries with the health experts and the stakeholders of health on the 25th of April.

We are sure that your attendance to any of the event/events will create mutual benefits.

SUMMARY EVENT OF PWCP WORLD HEALTH DAY - POSTPONED
May 2-15, 2021
We, as child ministers, are happy to note that the World Health Day Event on the 25th of April in four different countries has been a success. We thank everyone, especially the guests, the child ministers, and the adult allies who have strived to make it a success! However, we are sorry to inform you that we have had to postpone the closing presentation of the World Health Day Event from the 2nd of May to the 15th of May due to some unforeseen circumstances. It would be great to have your participation in the closing presentation on the 15th of May. We will update the agenda for the closing presentation soon.
International Peace Day Event
September 9, 2021
We are the Youth Voice & Participation element of the work delivered by the many children's parliaments around the world. We are responsible for giving back to the community (for example, holding food drives, interactions with mayors and other officials, and conducting events that promote the SDGs), linking young people together internationally to get involved in policy making and possibly supporting the government, and community work, share ideas and opinions, and to collaborate together on campaigns as youth activists. We work with young people around the world and we currently have parliamentarians from 3 different continents (Asia, Europe, and North America). We have young people from an array of different backgrounds, including parliament members, fundraising leaders, elected youth representatives, school counselors, and more. We welcome any young person who is passionate about their community, excellent at team work, optimistic, and has limitless potential in a network like ours.
We, as the PWCP would like to reach out to you in regards to the upcoming International Peace Day set by the United Nations. This day is observed all around the world on 21st of September every year; in celebration of it, the ministry of SDGs in the PWCP is happy to announce the Peace and Justice Award for children who have done commendable work towards SDG 16.
SDG 16 is becoming more and more important. From 2019 to 2020, there was a rise in child labor for the first time in two decades. Additionally, children continue to live in vulnerable and marginal areas that bring in high numbers of child deprivation. Therefore, on this day we need to spread awareness and make our actions stand out to inspire change in the world around us.
We would like to invite you to nominate candidates for the Peace and Justice Award. The award will be given from the PWCP in recognition of the Sustainable Development Goal number 16, Peace and Justice on International Peace Day (21st September) to someone who has made efforts towards bringing peace and justice to the world. Our celebration will be held on the 26th of September via Zoom, and everyone is welcome to attend. During this session, we will be announcing the winner of the 'Peace and Justice Award' bestowed by the PWCP, who the parliament members believe has made the most effort to bring peace and justice to the world.
Please nominate anyone who you think has and will continue to work towards peace and justice; self nominations are also applicable and very much welcomed. The winner will be announced on the 26th via a Zoom call being held by the PWCP to celebrate Peace and Justice day. Winners will receive a cash prize and will be invited to say a few words. First place– $50, second place– $25, third place– $20. Link to the nomination form: https://forms.gle/an6K9vG56PiWzxst8; the deadline to fill it out is September 21st.
