SustainUS COP23 Creative Challenge Submission Form
Please use this form to submit your entries for our COP23 Creative Challenge. Your entries to the challenge should be work created and published/posted during the window of April 4th - June 1st.
Final, firm deadline for submissions to the COP23 Creative Challenge: June 1, 2017, 11:59pm ET.
FIRST ROUND: WHY? OUR CLIMATE STORIES
As a reminder, the first round is mandatory to be considered for our COP23 delegation. The prompt is: Create and publish one or more pieces of writing or creative media that explore why you engage in the movements for climate justice. The emphasis is on the WHY and the YOU - we're looking for personal stories that explore why you are who you are, why you do what you do, why you believe what you believe.
We encourage you to submit to our priority deadline for Round One on April 24, 2017, but will be accepting submissions up until the final 6/01 deadline.
SECOND ROUND: WHAT? OUR MOVEMENT STORIES
The second round prompt is: Create and publish one or more pieces of writing or creative media that explore arguments, demands or analyses of the movements for climate justice. While in the first round we spoke from our hearts, we now speak more from our heads – what is it that is so troubling about the current state of our society, democracy, energy systems and economy?
