One winner will travel to Rio de Janeiro to participate in the summit. The winner plus a guest will come to Rio for the Earth Summit, fully accredited by TckTckTck, a global campaign for climate action.
The finalists,15 to 20 videos, will be used to inspire the urgent action that is needed to move the sustainability agenda forward.
