First High School Students' Eco Idea Contest

The Sankei Shimbun, operator of the Global Environment Awards (sponsored by the Fuji Sankei Group), is holding the 1st High School Eco Idea Contest for high school students nationwide to express their ideas for protecting the global environment in a video up to three minutes long. Ideas are invited.

The SDGs are international goals that aim to achieve a sustainable and better world by 2030. 5 of the 17 goals are related to the global environment, and we are looking for ideas to change the world with free ideas. Participants will explain their ideas in an easy-to-understand manner to new acquaintances and audiences. The goal is to generate empathy and new ideas in the listeners. We are looking forward to seeing ideas that are not bound by conventional thinking, but are full of dreams and hopes.
