Baltic Sea Youth Dialogue 2020 Competition

29.10.2020 |

Are you a young creative writer, graphic artist or maybe you have a project idea for a more sustainable future? The Council of The Baltic Sea States is calling 18-30 year olds from around the region to join the competition Baltic Sea Youth Dialogue 2020 – let’s create a sustainable future together!

Choose your field of interest between creative writing, graphic design or developing a project idea:

Creative Writing: Write your personal story, a political essay or a piece of fiction on the topic "Reviving or overcoming borders?" or a chapter of a children’s book on sustainable development issues in the Baltic Sea Region or create a
short story for children (5 -10 years old) explaining why we need to save our sea and invest in a sustainable future now. Or choose your own topic.

Graphic Design: Create a poster (visual message) that would represent, promote or inspire ideas of transnational youth cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region. The best poster will be posted online, printed and exhibited in future
political events, various meetings and conference.

Developing a Project Idea: As experts of your living space, the Baltic Sea Region, young people are invited to submit their project ideas for a sustainable development of the Baltic Sea Region individually or as a group. Under the motto "Nothing about our future – without us", project ideas to make the Baltic Sea Region fit for the future are welcomed to take part in the competition.

Submit your entry for any of the three given categories until 30 November. Creative work will be encouraged and prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners at every category will be issued. The finalists will be selected by a renowned jury and honored during the online award ceremony on 12 December. More information  can be found here.

The competition is hosted by the Council of The Baltic Sea States, funded by the Federal Foreign Office and supported by the Baltic Sea Youth Platform.
