VA youth award - as promised at Tunza

An award that rewards environmental actions

Do you want international recognition for your project? Would you like the chance to win a trip to Sweden? We are now searching for the 2012 winners of the Volvo Adventure (organised in partnership with UNEP). Could it be a team from your school, youth or community group network wining one of the awards this year? The Tunza Conference in Bandung showed us there are amazing projects in Indonesia that should be applying because they have a possibility of winning.

All you have to do is follow this link and register yourself and your group to get the free materials and have a chance to win one of the UNEP-Volvo Adventure awards. The groups whose projects are deemed to be the best this year will get an all expenses paid trip to Sweden. You can enter as many teams as you want. This is an excellent opportunity for young people to promote themselves as it looks good on school, job, and college applications.

There are several ways for a project to receive endorsements and international recognition for the efforts young people are making to solve environmental problems. The projects act as a gallery of all the ways that young people are finding to ensure they inherit solutions rather than problems. Anyone working with on a practical environmental project with young people aged between 13 and 16 years of age can enter. They need to be working in groups of two to five people and actively involved in devising and managing the project.

Please take the time to register, and then put your project in this year's gallery of projects that are helping solve environmental problems around the world.
