IHDP Writing Contest: Win a prize and be published!

The IHDP Secretariat (UNU-IHDP) is pleased to announce its first scientific writing contest for a new magazine to be launched in late fall 2011.

The contest is open to young scholars from all over the world (graduate students, PhD students or postdocs). Scholars from developing countries are particularly encouraged to take part. The Secretariat will select five winners to be awarded a cash prize - and will publish their work in its magazine’s first issue.

Articles should address a significant scientific topic relating to the human dimensions of the 'Green Economy'. While the subject matter may be technical, contestants should seek to write an article that is understandable to a non-scientific audience.

Entries are not to exceed 3,000 words and must be submitted via e-mail to Этот адрес электронной почты защищен от спам-ботов. У вас должен быть включен JavaScript для просмотра. by August 31, 2011. Please make sure to include “Writing Contest” in the subject line.

Cash prizes will be as follows:
 1st Place - $ 500

2nd Place - $ 200
3rd - 5th Place - $ 100 each

*Employees of the IHDP Secretariat (UNU-IHDP) and their dependants are excluded from entry. No recourse to legal action is permitted.
