Win a once in a lifetime opportunity!

Win a once in a lifetime opportunity!

Are you passionate about the environment?  Would you like the chance to talk to those in control?  We have partnered up with Eurostar to offer young people aged 10 to 18 the chance of a lifetime.

To enter the competition all you need to do is record a 1-2minute video on your phone, laptop, webcam or camcorder and send it in.  The video should be you talking about the environment. We want to hear your views – tell us what you think about climate change and sustainable travel. Imagine that you are in the European Parliament talking to MEPs, what would you say to them about climate change?  But be quick, entries close 29th February.

Enter now!

We need your help!  The youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow and with your help we can help protect the planet for future generations.

Prizes  
Five winners will be selected and will win an iPod Shuffle and a day trip on Eurostar's Channel Tunnel train to Brussels and meet Members of European parliament.  This is a fantastic opportunity for young environmentalists to have their say, ask questions and be heard by those in control.  So what are you waiting for?

Don't forget, the deadline is soon - 29th February 2012.
