Macao, China: What does inclusiveness mean to you? To promote youth agency in Macao, the Macau Professional Speaking Association (MPSA) is launching the 2nd Annual Macao-wide English Essay Competition. Registration is now open for the competition, which invites all local upper primary, high school, and undergraduate college students, 10 – 25 years of age, to submit an essay reflecting on the theme “An Inclusive World.”
With the support of SDSN Youth Hong Kong as their supervisor and the United Nations University Institute in Macau as the advisor for the competition, MSPA is working closely with their co-organizers and partners to create a platform for students to explore their role in the world through writing and learning about The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development .
“Student voice is vital to our community.” says Competition Chair, Sandy Leong, “As agents of change, it is more important than ever to include them in the discussion of our collective future, empower them with skills and confidence, and encourage them to transform their ideas into actionable projects so we can all enjoy an inclusive world.”
After the essays are judged and scored, 68 winning essays will be published into an essay collection to embrace the voices of student stakeholders in the society and initiate a wider discussion about building a more sustainable and resilient future together.
