Young writers: how can we make the world fairer and more sustainable?

Thursday, 15 August 2013

This is the question asked by Red Pepper in their Young Writers' Competition. All members of Woodcraft Folk aged 16 - 25 are invited to submit an article in response, for the chance to win £100 and have their article published in Red Pepper magazine.

Here's the brief:

Write up to 800 words about an inspiring project or policy which is tackling the environmental crisis and addressing social or economic injustice at the same time. Where has this initiative been discussed, developed or adopted? Could it be applied elsewhere?

Deadline: 22 November 2013

The idea of action that brings about justice for both human beings and the environment seems like a key topic for Woodcraft Folk, and many of our members may already be involved in projects  aiming to do just that. So this is a great opportunity to shout about the way you think we should be changing the world! 

Woodcraft Folk are officially supporting Red Pepper's competition, which will be judged by Guardian columnist and author George Monbiot and Red Pepper's environment editor Kara Moses. A selection of articles will be published on the Red Pepper website, not just the winning entry - let's try to get some Woodcraft Folk articles up there!
