Poster Competition



The poster you design should be motivating and visual. With few words and strong graphics, it should get people thinking and make them want to act to change things for the better. 

Posters should address one of the following themes:

  • Giving young people a voice in the government decision process.

  • Opportunity for all! (Everyone deserves access to good schools, good health care, good jobs, a decent salary, a healthy environment, etc...)

  • Including more voices and more diverse voices in government decisions creates societies that are fairer to all.

  • Improving everyone’s well-being results in a stronger society than just concentrating on more material wealth (GDP).

  • The negative effects of income inequality on society.

  • An idea for reducing income inequality.

  • Changing the rules to help everyone have access to a better life.

  • Encouraging government to listen to everyone, not just to those with the most power and influence.

  • Getting involved in school, neighbourhood, community or larger organisations to make things better, such as providing better services.
