– to promote digital tools as vehicles for strengthening global citizenship;
– to boost the movement of UNESCO clubs, as a representative of civil society.

Each of them will receive the prize in the form of digital tools and materials, provided by the Contest Sponsors, and the prize of €300.

In addition, Laureates will receive a grant of up to €1000 each to participate in the Prize-giving Ceremony at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris.


“I have always tried to participate in various competitions, but this UNESCO competition was really fruitful and worth it. In the course of solving the competition, I also gained and deepened certain skills, such as critical thinking, creative and public speaking, writing skills, learnt about the past and the future, and most importantly, I learnt more about a really important organization of UNESCO, what contribution they make to people of different social strata, races and genders around the world.

Thank you for this opportunity, for your support for young people from all over the world, thanks to people like you, we have faith in a better future!”

“Thanks to my Talleyran [UNESCO] club, I was able to take part in the competition from UNESCO. For me, this is the first international competition in which I took part and thanks to my efforts I was able to win. And it is a great honor for me to represent Kazakhstan at this prestigious event. Thank you for your interest to such organizations as KazFUCA and UNESCO.”
