Get international recognition young people in your network, courtesy of Volvo, UNEP and UNESCO
3 October 2012


WTA Education Services Ltd is searching for the next crop of projects to show how young people are dealing with global issues and ensuring they inherit their own solutions, and not just our problems. The aim is to provide a gallery of the best practical projects to be part of the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development and enable UNEP to have contact with those practical-minded young decision-makers, the movers and shakers of tomorrow. To take part is easy and it could be any activity from tree planting to a community wide project. If you know of groups who are active and that deserve international recognition for their efforts and achievements please ask them to register at http://www.volvoadventure.org/env_register.aspx . The outcomes could be:
  1. International recognition for their project
  2. A potential invite to Sweden (all expenses paid) to present their projects to an international jury
  3. A commendation that can help them with college or job applications
  4. Access to free education materials

This is also a chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to Sweden to discuss their project with the VA partners and win up to USD $10,000 for their project. Anyone working on a practical environmental project aged between 13 and 16 years of age can enter for the Volvo Adventure. They need to be working in groups of two to five people and actively involved in devising and managing the project. We look forward to showcasing more of the remarkable work of young people from around the world!

Please take the time to register yourselves and let your network know about the opportunity.

Do you know of local 13-16 year olds who are making a difference to the environment? We do, but we also know that we do not know them all! So this is a message for any group of two to five young people who are actively involved in an environmental project to enter for an award that can give them international recognition. They decide the local problem they want to tackle, and then tell us what they have achieved. Working with young people, UNEP, UNESCO, and the World Scouts Organization, the Volvo Adventure has been quietly building for 12 years. We now have a thriving network of young people dedicated to inheriting their solutions rather than our problems. We are now inviting your network to join ours and be part of a window on the world where young people are demonstrating how to make a difference.
Currently we are searching for the next crop of projects to show how young people are dealing with global issues and ensuring they inherit their own solutions, and not just our problems. The aim is to provide a gallery of the best practical projects to be part of the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development and enable UNEP to have contact with those practical-minded young decision-makers, the movers and shakers of tomorrow. To take part is easy - just go to http://www.volvoadventure.org and register your projects.
