The winners of the Behavioral Change for Climate Change video competition organized by Parami University have been announced. The Behavioral Change for Climate Change video competition aims to raise awareness and encourage people to adopt eco-friendly behaviors during the traditional Myanmar Thingyan new year festival, as seasonal festivities tend to be the times when people tend to be more open to changing behavior. The video competition was a part of the Worldwide Teach-in for Climate Justice that Parami University held in late March.
The selection criteria mainly focus on a clear message with an exciting narrative and originality. The competition received 18 entries with interesting topics around climate change, and three videos were selected for the awards.
Congratulations to all the winners!
