Deadline: 19 August 2021

If you are between 18 and 35 years old tell the World Bank in a 1-min video OR in a photo with text answering the following:

Identify 3 actions your country/community could take to build a greener, more inclusive future.

If you chose to submit a video, here are the requirements:
  • The video must be no more than 1 minute long.
  • Record in a quiet place (no music or background noise)
  • Listen to your audio before you upload to make sure it is audible.
  • If you’re inside a car, or if someone is helping you film,  or if you are in a noisy environment, holding the camera closer could help so the microphone picks up your voice instead of the environment.
  • Make sure the video is not shaky, the camera must be still while filming.
  • Do not edit or add captions.

If you chose to submit a photo with text, here are the requirements:

  • Take a photo of yourself holding a sign with your three points written on a paper/cardboard.
  • Make sure the sign can be read.
  • Include your three points in writing in your submission.
