International Essay Competition for Young People

This is another Essay Competition that some of you could participate! Do try for it! Thanks Gabrielle for the info.

The annual International Essay Competition for Young People is jointly organized by the Goi Peace Foundation and the UNESCO.

The United Nations has designated 2001-2010 as the "International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for The Children of The World" and 2005-2014 as the "united Nations Decade of education for Sustainable Development". Not only should young people benefit from these global initiatives, but empowered to play a leading role in them.

The theme for this year is "My project to create positive change in my environment. How can I foster sustainable development in my community?"

Young people age 14-25 from around the world are invited to submit their innovative ideas on this theme.
