The Society and the Financial Times are pleased to announce the launch of our joint School Essay Competition for 2020. We are seeking thoughtful and well-argued responses from sixth form students on the geographical story behind a chosen set or sets of data about sustainability and climate change.
Sixth form students should use FT for Schools and other sources to find data to help tell a story based around the COP-26 aims ‘to increase climate ambition, build resilience and lower emissions’. Answers should consider a range of scales from local to global.
Students should submit a clear essay or ArcGIS StoryMap which does not exceed 1,000 words, is well-evidenced and reaches a clear conclusion.
There will be one overall winner and up to five highly commended awards. Winning entries will be published on our website and may also be published on FT.com.
Entries should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday 30 September.
