Commonwealth Sustainable Energy Transition (CSET): Children and Youth Challenge

Must read

Join the Commonwealth Sustainable Energy Transition (CSET): Children and Youth Challenge! Details about eligibility and how to enter are below.

Deadline for submissions is 31 August 2023.

We need energy to do the things we do every day. But did you know most of the energy we use comes from sources that will run out unless we find new ways to make it without harming the Earth?

We need energy that is good for the environment and won’t run out! That’s what we call ‘sustainable energy’.

By the year 2030, we want to make sure everyone has affordable, reliable, clean and sustainable energy. This means we need to work together and make big changes in how we make and use energy.

But most of the time, the words we use to talk about energy and the climate can be confusing.

That’s why we want children and young people to come up with ideas for:

  1. how we can teach people about sustainable energy in our communities in fun and easy to understand ways, and
  2. Ways we can use sustainable energy in our communities.

We also want teachers and educators to share their best ideas for teaching about sustainable energy to children and communities.

The Commonwealth believes in investing in young people and helping them lead the way to a better future for everyone.

Join us in this challenge and let’s work together to make the world a cleaner, better place for everyone!
