Call for Participation - Your contributions on the subject of equality
Let your creativity run wild and tell your story about equality in a format of your choice. A great prize is waiting!
What is it all about?
The issue of equality has many dimensions. Let us just look at the 2030 Agenda with its 17 goals, which aim for a fairer and more sustainable world and way of life. Many of them want to achieve more equal opportunities and equality and promote diversity. When we talk about equality, we immediately think of different topics and areas as well as different communities, such as gender equality, equality between generations, between states, for religious groups, for minorities, for social groups, with regard to nutrition, health, education, language, infrastructure, climate and much more. This list could go on for a long time… #equalityforall
How can I participate?
We want to hear your stories – be it on your favorite project in which you work for greater equality on a professional or voluntary basis or your personal experience connected to the topic.
With your contributions, we want to concretize and examine different areas and dimensions of equality, e.g. political, social, economic and cultural aspects. We also want to give you the opportunity to tell inspiring, personal stories.
We would like to address this broad topic in as many different forms of presentation as possible. You can therefore submit reportages, reports, portraits, photo essays or short videos. Maybe a completely different format comes to your mind - we look forward to your ideas!
The submission deadline has passed and the voting is completed. We will announce the winning story soon.
What is the prize and how will the winner be selected?
The winning story is visualized in a professionally drawn comic strip, which will be published on the Alumniportal. The editorial team of the Alumniportal makes a pre-selection from all submitted contributions. Up to ten of the best contributions will then be published on the Alumniportal Deutschland. The final vote is done by the community. The decision is binding for all participants and cannot be contested.
