On 5 February 2017, UNU-IAS, the Ministry of the Environment of Japan, and the Environmental Restoration and Conservation Agency will co-organize the Second National Youth Environmental Activity Presentation Contest.
To realize a sustainable society, each one of us should take action. As part of our responsibility to future generations, it is particularly important that youth be involved in considering solutions to global environmental problems. Youth have initiated many local environmental practices and actions. To further broaden and enhance such activities, opportunities to interact with other youth who share a similar vision are needed.
Taking this into account, the Second National Youth Environmental Activity Presentation Contest aims to provide an occasion for high school students to present their environmental activities and learn from one another. At this event, 16 schools selected nationwide will come together, and the schools that present the best practices will receive awards.
Please note that this event will be held in Japanese only and no interpretation will be provided.
For more information, including regarding registration, please visit the event page on our Japanese website.
