Unesco: Slogan contest for Water Cooperation 2013
Water security challenges are increasingly taking on a global dimension due to increasing water scarcity and uncertainty that impact people and their livelihoods, energy, food and ecosystems. Although these changes are global, no institution or country can face the challenges they pose alone: international scientific cooperation is needed.
By declaring 2013 the International Year of Water Cooperation, the international community recognizes the importance of the peaceful management and use of water resources, working together towards a common goal, in a way that is mutually beneficial.
You can contribute to the campaign for the United Nations International Year of Water Cooperation 2013 by participating in the slogan contest: your submission could become the official slogan! The winner will be invited to the kickoff meeting of the United Nations International Year of Water Cooperation 2013 at UNESCO headquarters in Paris, France, in January 2013. The prize includes airfare to Paris and accommodation for two nights.
The three best entries will be selected by a committee of representatives from UN-Water, UNESCO and partners. The public will vote for their favorite online and select the winner.
The contest is open to all, with the exception of those involved with the campaign (employees of UN Water, UNESCO and partners) or their immediate family members.
Submission of entries: 27 August-15 November 2012 Online voting for the winner: 30 November - 25 December 2012 Announcement of the winner: 31 December 2012. The winner will be notified by email before the public announcement is made.
