30june-comps-GOIThe annual essay contest is organized in an effort to harness the energy, imagination and initiative of the world's youth in promoting a culture of peace and sustainable development.

The theme for this year's competition is "The Power of Culture to Create a Better Future" - The future begins with the vision we hold now. What kind of future do you wish to create for yourself and the world?

Every part of the world has its own culture. Culture includes the arts, traditions and customs of a country or region, as well as the wisdom, values, lifestyles and trends of the people living there. In order to build a peaceful world, we need to acknowledge and respect each other's cultures. What aspects of the culture in your country or region do you take pride in, and how can youth make the most of them to create a better future?
