Camera Sika is a British Council filmmaking project which provides young people with opportunities to discover and develop creative and technical skills through filmmaking. The project aims to develop the knowledge of educators, equipping them with the skills needed to teach digital filmmaking to young people; and to introduce young people to filmmaking and visual storytelling.  


The UK will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland on 1-12 November 2021. The summit will bring together heads of states, experts, campaigners, and others to envision and accelerate towards a zero-carbon economy.   

British Council with support from the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office Nepal, is creating a campaign, Road to COP26, which aims to strengthen capacities and amplify the voices of those most impacted so that they can engage national and international stakeholders of climate change response in the lead up to COP26.
