If you had two minutes to address the world's leaders, what would you say? This is what folks at TckTckTck and Climate Nexus want to know in their Date with History contest. It's an opportunity for young people to share their vision for the type of world they want to live in.
Inspired by Severn Cullis-Suzuki's famous speech at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, the contest encourages young people to upload two- to three-minute speeches that will inspire global leaders attending this year's Earth Summit in June. The idea is to reflect on the UN's theme of "The Future I Want".
The contest is open to people between the ages of 13 and 30 from around the world. David Suzuki Foundation board member Severn Cullis-Suzuki will be one of the judges. And the contest winner will have the opportunity to address world leaders in person at the Rio +20 Earth Summit!
Environmental issues go beyond borders, and this contest encourages different voices and perspectives to way weigh in about the future of our planet. It's a creative idea and one that DSF is proud to support.
