This activity has finished. You can no longer earn points for completing this activity.
Write the Change! is an exciting European-wide competition for young people aged 14-19, harnessing the power of stories to bring about positive change.
Throughout history, people have moved from one place to another to seek a better life. However, across Europe, the dominant narratives around ‘migration’ and ‘migrants’ remain largely negative. Write the Change! is part of a larger project, Start the Change!, which aims to engage young people across the continent in exploring issues around migration and sustainable development, and taking positive action in their local communities.
Judges of the competition are looking for innovative storylines from young people’s perspectives that are related to the themes of migration and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. These should show a high degree of creativity and have the potential for real impact by changing values and attitudes.
An experienced Scottish jury will select the 3 best storylines to put forward to the international jury. The overall winning storyline from Scotland will receive a hamper of surprise goodies for their school or group. The top three storylines from across Europe will receive a cash prize of up to 1,500 euros for their school or youth group, and the opportunity to attend the worlds’ largest youth film festival in Giffoni, Italy.
