How? By getting creative and designing a five-minute, TEDx-style video presentation inspiring people to think about what their natural environment means to them.
The competition is open to Tauranga and Western Bay locals aged 12-24. Presentations can be created by individuals or teams and can be filmed simply on a smartphone or home video-camera.
Best entries will be screened at Earth Hour on 28 March 2015, and the winning video will earn its creator the opportunity to present at TEDx Tauranga 2015 in July, and receive training from the event’s speaking coaches. There ar also $500, $300 and $200 Prezzy cards for the top three entrants.
In addition to the video presentation, entrants are also invited to submit a project proposal to turn an idea for environmental action into reality. Six $2000 grants, three in Tauranga City and three in the Western Bay, are up for grabs.
