The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) Youth Video Contest is focused on the theme ‘Renewable Energy in the Time of COVID-19: Youth Actions for Recovery’. The video contest gives young people a voice in the energy transition and the opportunity to take part in IRENA’s 2021 Youth Forum.

The winner or winners of the youth video contest will get a chance to engage with and contribute to the IRENA Youth Forum that will be held on January 2021 at IRENA Headquarters. Their videos will be also circulated on IRENA’s social media channels and featured in a newsroom article on the IRENA website. A selection committee made up of four representatives from youth constituencies of the United Nations Major Group for Children and Youth and three representatives from IRENA will evaluate the submissions based on the relevance, originality, creativity, and potential viewer impact.

The deadline is on 8 July 2020.
