Young people from around the world are invited to enter the 2018 International Essay Contest for Young People organized by the Goi Peace Foundation, a Key Partner of the Global Action Programme on ESD (GAP).

The annual contest is organized in an effort to harness the energy, creativity and initiative of the world's youth in promoting a culture of peace and sustainable development. It also aims to inspire society to learn from the young minds and to think about how each of us can make a difference in the world.  

The theme for this year's contest is: THE CHANGE I WANT TO MAKE
What is the one thing you would like to change the most to make your school, workplace, community, country or the world a better place? How would you bring about that change?
Please share your concrete ideas.

First Prize winners will be invited to Tokyo, Japan, and will receive the Minister of Education Award at the Goi Peace Foundation Forum in November 2018.

Essays may be submitted by anyone up to 25 year old.
The deadline for entry is 15 June 2018.
