The two themes this year, Climate friendly and resilient cities and Oceans and climate change, are highly important because by 2050:
- almost 3/4 of the world’s population is expected to reside in cities
- the world’s plastic littered oceans could be without fish
- global warming could disrupt 4/5 of the world’s oceans
The contest, open to people from 18-30, runs through August 18, when submissions must be submitted to the tvebiomovies online platform .
The two winners will attend November’s UN Climate Change Conference (COP23) in Bonn, Germany as part of the UNFCCC newsroom team of young reporters.
The competition is co-organized by the UNFCCC secretariat and the UNDP-GEF Small Grants Programme, and implemented by Television for the Environment-tve.
