Climate change impacts every country in the world – and it’s not just affecting the environment, it’s impacting people’s lives and destroying communities. The whole world is in a race against climate change and we want to empower you to help!
Our challenge for you as young people is: Less talk, more action. How might we create innovative solutions to tackle climate change?
The Climate Action Youth Design Challenge is a free online design thinking challenge that empowers you to consider how you can take climate action. It empowers you to identify problems, reframe them as opportunities, develop a solution and create a prototype.
Within this challenge, there are three key themes we encourage you to explore:
- Renewable and responsible energy use: Globally, energy use is increasing at an unsustainable rate. Only 1/5th of the world’s final energy consumption in 2013 was from renewable sources.
- Preserving our water supply: Only 3% of the world’s water is fresh (drinkable), and humans are using it faster than nature can replenish it.
- Sustainable cities: Currently, cities contribute more than 70 per cent of global carbon emissions and over 60 per cent of resource use.
Anyone aged 10-21 years old can enter and take part in this challenge. There are some great prizes up for grabs for the winners.
Entries close Friday 17 June 2022.
