The brief

Humanity is facing an environmental emergency. World and business leaders have failed to address the problem. Can you devise new alternative social and economic solutions that can protect the planet?

At last year’s United Nations Climate Action Summit, a 16 year old environmental activist Greta Thunberg stood in front of world leaders and said: “People are suffering and all you can talk about is money. How dare you!”

Think about the following problems, then select one problem and tell us your solution:

  • polluted air, water, land and soil
  • industrial and domestic waste
  • destroyed animals and plants habitats
  • deforestation and soil erosion 
  • depletion of natural resources (water, oil, wood, fish)

    In less than 600 words, describe your idea. If you wish, add pictures and videos to help our judges better visualise your solution (by entering them into Art Awards).

    Remember, with creative thinking there is no idea that is ‘too wild’, ‘absurd’, or ‘impossible’. Imagine. Be brave. Dream big. Push boundaries.

    Judging criteria

    Our panel of Jury will evaluate how creative and innovative - new, original and groundbreaking -  your solutions are. 

    These five questions can help you to think about your new environmental ideas
