As today’s young people are crucial for the shaping of our future, it is imperative that they are enabled to develop to their full potential. UNESCO’s objective is to help empower young people, reaching out to them, responding to their expectations and ideas, and fostering useful and long-lasting skills.
The theme for this year’s contest is: “CREATING THE FUTURE WE WANT”
Future begins with the vision we hold now. What kind of future do you wish to create for yourself and the world? Please share your dream and ideas for making it a reality.
Young people from around the world are invited to enter the 2012 Goi Peace Foundation – UNESCO International Essay Contest for Young People.
The deadline for entry is June 30, 2012.
