Jury's comment

I have had the honor to be involved with the Eco-Generation Environmental Essay Competition for at least five years now and during this time, I have seen many important and heart-wrenching topics. Each year, the essays by the future leaders of the environmental movement from all over the world show that people still do very much care about their planet and their fellow man. As always, I am filled with a sense of hope that the next generation will work hard and smart towards correcting the issues that their elders have left on our world's future generations. My parting words to this generation of writers...we are counting on you to prove that our hope is well placed.


As our Jury mentioned, we received numerous remarkable essays. However, we regret that only the limited number of entries can be chosen as winners. We do appreciate your generous understanding once again.


In this year, UN environment selected ONE entry for their UN environment prize and total of 26 winners including UN environment prize winner were selected out of more than 224 entries from 39 countries.
