The 2019 Summit was a historic year for the International Youth Media Summit (IYMS). We opened our Asia Regional Center in Kathmandu, led by our new Executive Director, Sapan Hamal. For the 14th Summit, we traveled to Pokhara, Nepal where the Annapurna Mountain Range and Lake Pokhara provided beautiful settings for this year’s films. 61 people from 23 countries formed bridges across cultures, joining our world-wide family without borders. For the 2019 Summit, we found support from the Nepal Government and the provincial Government of Gandaki, as well as Visit Nepal 2020 and the Film Development Board of Nepal. A record number of UN agencies sponsored our young delegates, including UNESCO, UNICEF, UNRCPD, UNDP, UN Women, and UNFPA. In addition, hundreds of private donors gave through TIME and the Global Giving Campaign to ensure that delegates with passion and vision, from every economic class, could participate with the Summit this year.
