The young people, those who will become the future society leaders, have shown great awareness of the need to take #ClimateAction. The latest Facebook challenge that we have announced under the hashtag #DesignInspire have shown excellent engagement by the young people in the country. As a result, we received 36 poster designs that expressed the creative side of the young people and the ability for sharing massages that will inspire others to take #ClimateAction.
This initiative has also shown that the young people are highly aware and prepared to engage in activities for raising awareness and mitigating the climate change effects that will be felt even more in the future.
Andrea Koleva is the holder of the most-liked poster in this challenge, so she practically won the competition. She comes from Stip, and currently is studying in the high school NOVA. Her poster illustrates melted “ice-cream” cone and sends a very vivid message that the planet is “melting” and the clock is ticking for taking urgent climate action in this regard.
There was also an excellent feedback, shares and comments for the poster of Jovanka Atanasovska from Skopje who is a student at the Academy of Design in Brainster. In a conversation with klimatskipromeni.mk Jovanka said that her poster theme was inspired by the increased rate of cutting trees, as well as the increased incidence of forest fires caused by human factors. The poster illustrated the damaged “lungs of the planet” as an image of the destroyed forests in our environment.
The poster that was ranked in third place was created by the young high school student Julija Trajanovska from Strumica. Julija painted an alarm clock to remind us that it is time to "wake up", to be responsible and participate in creating a better future.
In addition to the prize-winning posters, we would also like to give credit to all other competitors that participated with their designs and brought very inspirational and motivational messages to all our readers. In our eyes, these are the young climate heroes that should be seen as the bright example of the new generation. Stay informed about the actions that you can undertake, and we will do our best to continue posting educational content, to answer all your #ClimateQuestions, and reward you for your interest in build a platform on which everyone can access and contribute.
