Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) is currently regarded as one of the most desirable countries for those who like tobacco. Tourist services come second to the constant consumption of tobacco products, so public places rarely have non-smoking areas.
According to a study conducted by the World Bank, more than one million adults and two thousand children aged 10 to 14 in Bosnia and Herzegovina are daily tobacco users. Not only does tobacco usage impact the users, but also creates issues such as exposing non-smokers to second-hand smoke, and experts warn that even brief exposure warrants risk.
The Klima Bez Dima initiative invites youth from across Bosnia and Herzegovina to submit creative multimedia content that tackles topics related to smoking in BiH and its impacts and/or promotes the benefits of a smoke-free environment. The content submitted as a part of this contest will be featured across the Klima Bez Dima and Balkan Diskurs online and social media platforms in an effort to promote the amendment of BiH tobacco control laws and advocate for a healthier environment for the country’s citizens.
