THIS COMPETITION IS FOR YOU, IF:

WHAT IS THE COMPETITION TASK?

In this years' edition of the Get Involved! Competition we would like your students to join forces, exchange ideas and prepare a project that would answer the following question:



How can you make your school, your local area or your town greener?



In their project students should:

1. Decide which area they would like to make greener and more eco-friendly (whether it is the school, their local area or even the whole city or country)?

2. Present their ideas in a well-organised and attractive form (a poster or a leaflet) that would include their plan of action, explaining what they would like to do, what resources or support they would need and how they want to acheive it?

3. Justify their decisions, by answering the question 'How these activities or actions would make the place greener?
