Deadline: September 2, 2019
Samsung Engineering jointly with UN environment invite entries for the 12th Eco-generation Environmental Essay Competition. They are inviting youth all over the world to raise awareness on the theme of the upcoming World Environment Day – Beat Air Pollution.
As many of you know, World Environment Day is the United Nations flagship day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action to protect our environment. Since it began in 1974, the event has grown to become a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in over 100 countries.
To commemorate WED and its annual theme, Eco-generation would like to celebrate the bigger and better WED than ever and to call on Tunza Eco-generation members around the world to show their will to act on “Beat Air Pollution” for our future generations by writing an essay. It also aims to collect inspiring and creative ideas on why we should reduce air pollution by requiring them to think about diverse ways that we can help to combat air pollution.
