The deadline for submitting entries to the competition is 30 August 2016, with people between the ages of 18 and 30 eligible to participate.
The competition, which is run by Television for the Environment (tve) and is part of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change’s Action for Climate Empowerment and Momentum for Change initiatives, which will climax in a high-profile awards ceremony at COP 22 Marrakech.
