Youth Climate Change Challenge Opens for Submissions
A competition for young people in Botswana to propose innovative solutions to address threats posed by climate change has been launched. The competition which is open to all young people in Botswana under the age of 35 will run from October 28th to November 15th.
Those wishing to enter the competition are expected to submit a two-page concept paper to be adjudicated by a panel of expert judges. The top 3 winners will receive great prizes.
All are encouraged to apply, and the winning idea could come from any sector or discipline, from drought management to sustainable agricultural production; urban planning and transportation, to name just a few.
This project is supported by the Delegation of the European Union. The Head of Delegation of the European Union to Botswana and SADC, Ambassador Jan SADEK said; “It is the young people who will be most affected by the negative effects of climate change, which is why we saw it fit to support the Youth Climate Change Challenge. We hope this competition will energise young people into thinking about their role in climate change response, and more broadly spark a dialogue about our shared future.”
Eligible people wishing to enter the competition should send a 2-page proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before the competition deadline of 15th November.
