To mark International Men’s Day 2012, the Division of Gender Relations and International Men’s Day Planning Committee has organized a jingle competition.
Members of the public are asked to display their creativity and compose a jingle which will be used to promote International Men’s Day which is being observed on November 19th.
International Men’s Day is intended to draw attention to men’s and boys’ health, improve gender relations, promote gender equality and highlight positive male role models. It is also an occasion to highlight discrimination against men and boys and to celebrate their achievements and contributions, in particular their contributions to community, family, marriage and child care.
The winning jingle should reflect the theme for International Men’s Day 2012, HELPING MEN AND BOYS LIVE LONGER, HAPPIER, HEALTHIER LIVES. The theme focuses on five key challenges that will help improve the health and wellbeing of men and boys all over the world:
1. Improving Men’s Life Expectancy
2. Increasing access to mental health services
3. Improving boys’ education
4. Tackling tolerance of violence against men and boys
5. Promoting fathers and male role models
