Alliance magazine essay prize

Alliance magazine ‘for philanthropy and social investment worldwide’ has announced an essay competition.

The topic is:  As a philanthropist, how would you spend US$10 million to combat global warming?

They ask: Would you seek to put pressure on governments, or to drive changes in public behaviour directly?  Would you focus on challenging unsustainable consumption trends or on addressing questions of equity between richer and poorer countries? Would you target your efforts towards particular industry sectors or particular technologies or institutions?  Whatever your plan, your essay must give some indication of how you would judge if you had been successful, what the obstacles would be and in what timeframe you would undertake this.

The deadline for submissions is 30 September, and the word limit is 1000 words.

The winning essay will be published in Alliance magazine, and recieve a price of £1,000.
