What might democracy look like as countries emerge from lockdown? How will our societies and cultures respond to this global crisis and its aftermath?

UCL and openDemocracy are teaming up to invite school and university students to have a say in how the world should look after coronavirus. They want to find and shout about the best ideas from the next generation for what should come next. They’re looking for images, short videos and written entries, and the judging panel includes academics across a wide range of subject areas and world-class institutions.

The competition is open to mature and postgraduate students, and the grand prize includes a bespoke training opportunity with either openDemocracy or UCL that may take the form of a mini-fellowship, work experience, or placement in line with the winner’s area of interest. All winners and runners-up will receive a personal mentoring/career advice session with one of the expert judges and their entries will be published on openDemocracy’s website.

The deadline is 10 July 2020. See the openDemocracy World After Covid website for further details and to enter the competition.
