Theme of the Competition
Participants are invited to submit original works on the theme of "climate change". Participants should use one or more of the statements below as a starting point for their work:
- Change your lifestyle to make a real difference:
As fellow citizens of the Earth, we all have a responsibility to tackle climate change. By embracing lifestyle choices that are less harmful to the environment, we can all be part of the solution. For example, to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions, use electric transportation. Where possible, walk or ride a bike instead of driving. Reduce your household's energy use by, for instance, switching to LED lighting and more energy-efficient electrical appliances.
- Preserve our world for the next generation:
Climate change is a global crisis that goes beyond borders. It requires cooperation at all levels across the world, among individuals, businesses and governments. The actions we take now will determine what the world will look like in the future. If all of us come together to tackle climate change, it's not too late for us to make a difference and build a safer world for everyone, especially our future generations.
- Tell others what you are doing to magnify your impact:
Telling your friends and family what you are doing to reduce emissions is one of the most important things you can do to fight climate change. Use your voice as a consumer, a customer and a voter to magnify the impact of your words and make businesses and the authorities more aware of the importance of climate issues.
- Be optimistic about climate action:
There is hope in the fight against climate change as more people and organisations are making climate change a priority. More and more young people are now stepping up and taking leadership roles, driving change, and urging everyone to take meaningful climate action. Other good news includes the fact that the use of electric transportation is accelerating around the world, while the cost of renewable energy is falling continuously.
- Take meaningful climate action to create social, economic and ecological benefits for everyone:
Building an eco-friendly world is a big challenge, but it can also bring significant benefits. It can help us rein in the runaway costs of climate change, create more green jobs, make our air and water cleaner, improve public health, preserve ecosystems and different animal and plant species, and build a more inclusive and prosperous world economy for all.
