The World Bank Essay Competition 2009

The World Bank Essay Competition 2009

WANTED:  The Next Generation of ‘Green’ Entrepreneurs

Climate change has been identified as one of the biggest global threats of our time. Scientists agree that global warming and extreme climate phenomena can be increasingly attributed to human activity – in particular, heavy emission of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, resulting from industrial processes.

Solutions to those pressing problems could lie in the rapidly growing ‘green economy’:  environmentally sustainable enterprises, technological innovations (new sources of clean, renewable energy), energy efficiency measures, economic incentives for low-carbon choices, etc. How can youth contribute?

The Essay Competition 2009 invites youth to share ideas on:

How does climate change affect you?
How can you tackle climate change through youth-led solutions?

Please answer both questions:

1. How does climate change affect you, your country, town or local community? How do you think it will affect you in the future? Think about the consequences for employment, health, security and other areas of your life.

2. What can you do, working together with your peers, to address the problem of climate change in your country, town or local community? Think specifically about the role of youth-led initiatives in the ‘green economy’.

Who can participate?
The International Essay Competition is open to all young people, students and non-students alike, between the ages of 18 and 25, from all countries of the world.

If you are at least 18 and not older than 25 on June 15, 2009, you are eligible to participate.

    Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks
    fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, wonderful blog!

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two
    pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of
    the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve
    been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am anxious about
    switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.

    First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts
    prior to writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting
    my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Thanks!
