International Essay Contest for Young People 2018
 

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
