The Theme for Celebrating Life 2016
The theme for Celebrating Life 2016 is “Youth in Change”. Youth nowadays have been showing their leadership skills in the most critical areas which are unprecedented. As an example, there was a point in time where politics was not considered a good avenue by the youth but now, that notion has changed and new faces in politics are becoming a commonplace in Bangladesh. Youth have become well-renowned due to their persistent effort in making change wherever necessary, through various initiatives such as NGOs and the list of such leaders is increasing every day. These efforts, both individual and collective have made a positive impact both nationally and internationally. What sets the modern youth of this time apart from that of in the previous decades, is the inclusion and equal effort put forward by women. It is no longer a myth that women have been contributing equally to that of men.
The global economy is facing many challenges in various aspects and the youth has been successfully tackling these challenges one by one and it is the same in Bangladesh, therefore, Celebrating Life has decided to come up with a theme that could not be more fitting with the current time. Celebrating Life has always promoted a positive theme in the previous years and this year is no exception. Through this competition, Celebrating Life will be looking for innovation and unprecedented creative expression by means of photography, lyrics, film.
