OpenDemocracy and UCL are teaming up to find and shout about the best ideas from the next generation about what our post-lockdown future might look like.
What might democracy look like as countries emerge from lockdown? How will public health change as a result of this global pandemic? What lessons from history have we forgotten that might guide how the world recovers? How will our societies and cultures respond to this global crisis and its aftermath?
Whatever your interests or background, this competition is open to capture your thoughts on shaping a different and better future and there are a variety of prizes available across a range of categories.
How to enter
- The competition is open to school, university and higher-education students over the age of 14.
- Submit your entry as either a written article, short video or image/photograph that best describes your vision of the world after Covid-19.
- The competition opens on 15 June 2020 and closes on 10 July 2020.
Winners and prizes
Two winners will be selected from the entries in all three categories; a grand prize winner selected by the judges and a People’s Choice winner selected by public vote. There will also be prizes for the three runners-up chosen as outstanding entries by the judges.
Grand prize: £200 in book vouchers and a bespoke training opportunity with either open Democracy or UCL that may take the form of a mini-fellowship, work experience, or placement in line with the winner’s area of interest.
