Create1World invites students in Y7–13 to enter our fourth annual creative activism and global citizenship competition.
The NCEA-aligned competition seeks creative entries that imagine new ways to think about global issues such as peace, inequality, celebrating diversity or addressing climate change. It could be a video, song, poem, short story, speech or theatre performance – but it must help us think about ways of working collaboratively for the betterment of all humanity.
Entries open August 1, and are open until 14 October.
Entries are welcome in Te Reo Māori, English or New Zealand Sign Language.

Create1World conferences offer Aotearoa's young people skills, inspiration and role models of diverse artists who are using their art to connect us across cultures and address global issues such as peace, inequality and climate change. We think this is important work to be celebrating right now, and we invite all teachers and students in Y7–13 to join us for Create1World 2019.
In the lead-up to the conferences (November 14, Wellington; November 21, Auckland), we also run a national creative activism and global citizenship competition for young people.
You can see all the details of both competition and conferences here: http://masseyblogs.ac.nz/expressivearts/2019/03/06/create1world-2019.
