Over 60 states and territories are contaminated by landmines, cluster munitions, unexploded and abandoned explosive ordnance. Many regions also face risks of accidental explosions and illicit diversion from poorly managed ammunition stockpiles. The use of antipersonnel mines has caused widespread contamination globally. 

Join us as we reignite our #TogetherAgainstMines campaign across social media channels throughout the month of April. We firmly believe that by working together, we can achieve remarkable progress in the mine action sector. That's why we're inviting individuals and organisations like yours to participate and share your stories of togetherness with us.

Here's how you can get involved:

  • Get Inspired: Reflect on your experiences and memories related to mine action. Was there a significant accomplishment you achieved with your peers? Do you have a story about a mentor who inspired you, or perhaps you've mentored someone yourself?
  • Guiding Questions: If you're unsure where to start, we've provided some guiding questions to help you craft your story. Choose one that resonates with you and share your thoughts with the world.  
  • Share your #TogetherAgainstMines Story: Create your post – a short tweet with a picture? A longer memory on Facebook or LinkedIn? Whatever you decide, share your stories and pictures on your preferred social media platform using the hashtag #TogetherAgainstMines. Don’t forget to include a picture to accompany your story.  
  • Spread the Word: Tag your colleagues, friends, and share across your networks to encourage others participate. The more voices we have united in this cause, the greater impact we can make. Together, we can make a difference. 

Guiding questions 

  • Was there a day when you felt like you experienced something really big – a meaningful accomplishment with your peers?  
  • Do you have a story about a mentor of yours or have you mentored anyone?  
  • Who has supported your personal drive to work in/support mine action? 
  • Who was there with you for a memorable ‘first’ experience related to mine action, was there an ‘Aha’-moment after a struggle?
