The brief for 2020 – My vision: Partnerships for a sustainable future

Back
in 2015 at the United Nations, world leaders signed up to seventeen
ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), to be achieved by the
year 2030 or earlier.

TSL is pleased to invite children around the world to share
their ideas on how partnerships can help to achieve the SDG’s and build a
more sustainable world.

Students are free to approach the topic however they wish.

For example, they might decide to:

  • consider one or many of the SDG’s,
  • concentrate on already existing or possible future initiatives, or
  • focus on local, national or international level partnerships.

However they decide to approach their essays, children are strongly
encouraged to include their own personal views, perspectives and
experiences to help bring their visions alive.

Each student is invited to submit one essay in English, entitled,

My vision: Partnerships for a sustainable future

The essay length varies by age as follows:
