As inspired by the winners of the Voices of Future Generations competition
Today is a good day to save the planet. But then again, every day is a good day to work towards a better, more sustainable and kinder way to live. Nobody has demonstrated that more clearly than the children who entered the Voices of Future Generations competition.
Hundreds of children aged 8-12 from across the seven Emirates have submitted original stories of heroic adventures, where the protagonist has overcome terrific challenges to create a better world. Most of these children have attended workshops and researched the Sustainable Development Goals. They have read the stories by previous winners of the international competition. They have looked at our world and visualised how it could be better.
As we open registrations for the second year of the competition, we have a lot to celebrate. Each one of the children who have entered the competition is a voice for change. They are the Voices of Future Generations. To mark the occasion, we wanted to share a few words from HH Sheikha Hissa bint Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Goodwill Ambassador for the Voices of Future Generations initiative for the Middle East region.
We couldn’t agree more.
