[Free Report] Environmental Essay writing Competition - Youths and the Environment

by DAVID CHAPOLOKO | 22-09-2019 15:17 recommendations 0

In line with the theme for the month 'Youths and the Environment', I decided through my organisation Passion for Greens, to approach the theme with an environmental essay writting competition. The competition was aimed at encouraging research about vital issues effecting the environment as well as identifying children that are skilled at writing and are passionate about the environment, to motivate them and channel their influence into impacting social change. 

The Competition was held at Mitanto Secondary School, a school located  in Kitwe district of the Copperbelt province in Zambia. We targeted grades, eight(8), ten (10) and eleven (11) and the major topics we covered were;
  • Climate Change,
  • Environmental degradation and
  • Pollution.
The participants were asked to pick any one of the topics and were tested based on what they though could be the causes, effects and solutions to the preffered subject. The response was overwhealming, we had fourty three (43) respondents out of which we managed to award the best ten (10) essay writers. 

To encourage them, we gave them books, Passion for Greens T Shirts, pens and certificates. Furthermore, we awarded the school management with a certificate of appreciation for supporting the initiative. We have managed to successfully open an environmental club at the school were all the 43 participants are now members and are all eager to participate more in environmental sensitization programs.

I want to thank TUNZA Ecogeneration for supporting this program and if there is anything i can ever wish for as an ambassador during my term, is raising a generation of children who will aspire to become environmentalists, natural resource managers and climate activists. And i know that if we as environmentalists gave in everything while holding our efforts close to each other, together we can. 

Thank you!
