Trust for Sustainable Living
2015 International Schools Essay Competition:
We are pleased to announce that the Trust for Sustainable Living’s 2015 International Schools Essay Competition and Debate will focus on the future of education for sustainable development.
As the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development draws to a close, the Trust for Sustainable Living is inviting schoolchildren around the world (aged 7-17) to share their ideas on the future of sustainability education. Trophies will be awarded for the top five prizes in each category (Primary and Secondary) and one overall Grand Prize winner will receive an amazing free trip to the UK for up to three people.

Schools around the world are also invited to take the Schools Sustainability Challenge and submit a short video featuring their best sustainability projects. The winning school will be awarded a special Challenge Trophy and £500 (or equivalent) towards future projects.
Online registration is now open and Teacher Champions have until 23rd January 2015 to submit their essay and video entries. Schools/teachers – register here
Schools will be notified of shortlisted entries in March 2015 and invited to attend the International Schools Debates in the UK on 7-10 July 2015.
The previous year’s competition (What does ‘sustainable living’ mean to you?) received entries from 73 countries and schools from 20 countries attended the International Schools Debates in the UK.
The 2014 Grand Prize was awarded to Chinyere Ogbo (Emmaus & Ignatius Home School, Nigeria) and First Prize in the Primary category went to Ismael Costa (St. George’s School, Uruguay).
