European Union-The Hindu Centre Essay Competition 2015


  • Eligibility: 18 yrs and above
  • Benefits: Group tour and certificate.



The essay competition will target undergraduates (Bachelor's) and graduates (Master's only) and will elicit creative but practical suggestions from the youth of a country well-known as much for big ideas as for low-cost innovation, or jugaad, in informal parlance. Essays (1,500 words in English) should be submitted on or before 1700 hours September 15, 2015, on one of the following three topics:

 Climate Change in India: Challenges and Solutions

 Making India's Growth Sustainable

 Clean Development in India: the Way Forward for Towns and Cities

This initiative is being organised jointly by the European Union and The Hindu Centre for Politics and Public Policy - two organisations committed to global understanding and India's future. After an evaluation process involving experts, the results will be announced in October, following which three winners will be invited for a short study tour to Europe.
