EUROGEO with the IGU Commission for Geography Education organises two competitions to mark the International Year of Global Understanding.

The competition is aimed at young people from around the world to help raise awareness of the global implications of local everyday actions.

Competition for high schools

We invite high school students (ages 15-19) with a story to tell to submit their Story Map for the competition. The story should examine how the local relates to the global. Stories can include video, photography, text, data and sounds. Find out more

Competition for university students

University students (of all ages) are invited to share the results of research they have undertaken as part of their studies. Data should be presented in ways to help others understand the purpose of the research and its findings. Find out more

The International Year

The International Year of Global Understanding:
  • connects local actions and global challenges.
  • focuses on the global sustainability of local action.
  • recognises culturally different paths to global sustainability.

Global Understanding

  1. Eating / drinking / surviving

  3. Working / housing / urbanizing
  4. Communicating / networking / interacting
  5. Wasting / recycling / preserving
  6. Sports / entertaining / recreating
