IHDP Writing Contest
The International Human Dimension Project (IHDP) Secretariat has announced its first scientific writing contest for a new magazine to be launched in late autumn of 2011.
The contest is open to young scholars from all over the world (graduate students, PhD students or postdocs). Scholars from developing countries are particularly encouraged to take part. The Secretariat will select five winners to be awarded a cash prize - and will publish their work in its magazine’s first issue.
Articles should address a significant scientific topic relating to the human dimensions of the 'Green Economy'. While the subject matter may be technical, contestants should seek to write an article that is understandable to a non-scientific audience.
Entries are not to exceed 3,000 words and must be submitted via e-mail to secretariat [at] ihdp.unu.edu by 31 August, 2011. Please make sure to include “Writing Contest” in the subject line.
