The Society and the Financial Times are pleased to announce the launch of our joint School Essay Competition for 2021. With COP26 taking place later this year, we are seeking thoughtful and well-argued responses from sixth form students explaining how transport changes might help the world to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement.
Sixth form students should use FT for Schools and other sources to reference appropriate data and articles that focus on either the movement of people or the movement of food. Answers may explore cleaner transport methods and/or choices about whether movement is necessary, as well as food miles, behavioural changes and other relevant considerations that might help to reduce the impact of food supply and distribution to shops and our homes. Teachers and sixth form students should read the full instructions and criteria before entering.
Students should submit a clear essay or ArcGIS StoryMap which does not exceed 1,000 words, that is well-evidenced and reaches a clear conclusion.
The overall winner and highly commended entries will be published on our website and may also be published on FT.com and in Routes Journal.
Entries should be submitted online by 5.00pm on Friday 1 October.
