Are we ready to take responsibility for the future of our planet?

Judging by the disappointing results of the UN’s Rio+20 Earth Summit last June, it appears not.

But if national governments aren’t prepared to provide the much-needed leadership on global sustainability challenges at present, we thought it would be an opportune time to ask schoolchildren around the world for their thoughts on who should be doing what to lead us out of this mess …

We’re therefore pleased to announce that the topic of our 2013 International Schools Essay Competition is: Are we ready to take responsibility for the future of our planet?

on 'Are we ready to take responsibility for the future of our planet?'

    Hello, thank you for your interest in the competition. Only teachers can register and submit essays. Please let your teacher or school know – hopefully they can register and submit your essay on your behalf.

    I was shortlisted for Honorable mentions but, I was not able to attend the conferences in Seychelles and/or United Kingdom. Is it possible that my certificate/award can be sent to my school? Thanks.

    All the remaining certificates were posted out to Teacher Champions at the end of June so you should receive yours shortly if you have not already done so!
