 Doha, March 3, 2018 – The online registration portal is now open for high school and university students to sign up for the Sustainability Film Project competition. Launched by ConocoPhillips’ Global Water Sustainability Center (GWSC) and Qatar Green Building Council (QGBC), the competition will showcase diverse viewpoints on a sustainable future, with students working individually or in teams to produce a short video about sustainability.

High school students will compete in one category, while university students will compete in another. Students are challenged to create a 30 – 60 second video, either in English or Arabic, focused on the topic of ‘water and energy conservation’ or ‘a sustainable lifestyle’. Winners will be announced at a ceremony on May 9th, and are eligible to win prizes such as an iPhone X, MacBook, or an iPad mini.

Dr. Samer Adham, managing director of the GWSC, said: “The students taking part in the Sustainability Film Project are the future of Qatar – we want to encourage them to leverage their creative skills to show the wider community how sustainability can be achieved in our daily lives.”

For this inaugural competition, the entries will be judged by an array of notable academics and professionals.

“Through this competition, we aim to deepen awareness of sustainability in Qatar’s youth. By encouraging them to think critically, we can impart in them a sense of personal responsibility to shape a more sustainable world,” noted Meshal Al-Shamari, Director of QGBC.

The deadline for entries is Sunday, April 22nd. To find out more information – including how to participate – please visit www.qatargbc.org
