Excellent Minds Essay Competition Eligibility & Topic.

Eligibility

The essay is open to undergraduate students in tertiary institutions across Nigeria.

Essay Topic / Overview

1. Climate change and rising inequality in our world are twin threats that are particularly worrisome. In a space where no one is safe from the devastating effects of a heating planet, it is the poor who have done the least to heat the planet, that will suffer first, and the most, from the brunt of these threats in the new decade – if no action is taken to address these issues.

2. In the same vein, despite the significant boom in innovation and local markets in recent times, there are still unfair discrepancies and widening gaps between the haves and have-not’s in Nigeria.

3. These inequalities undermine the nation’s democratic system and the future of our young people. Sadly, the rising inequality has a powerful accomplice in climate change. “As a concerned Nigerian, pitch your biggest idea (not more than 1000 words) on how Nigeria can effectively address the double threats of climate change and inequality towards ensuring a sustainable future for its people.”

Excellent Minds Essay Competition Prizes.
