The official 2022 Young Artists and Authors Showcase theme is Generation Rescue: Sustainable Water for All.

Climate change has become an undeniably harsh reality in our lives, making the importance of raising awareness and taking action more essential every day

As the temperatures rise, water patterns are disrupted, ecosystems are disturbed, and energy resources are proven to be unsustainable for long-term use.

These ongoing changes impact our local and global communities in every aspect and youth are the key to tackle this global reality.

In line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, Sister Cities International will adopt climate change as the overarching theme for its Young Artists and Authors Showcase in both 2022 and 2023.

For the 2022 competition, SCI is proud to invite all its youth members to create submissions that highlight the importance of climate change and its impacts on water resources.

WE ENCOURAGE OUR YOUTH TO BE CREATIVE AND EXAMINE ALL ASPECTS OF THIS YEAR´S THEME

  • What does water sustainability mean to you?
  • How has your community been affected by climate change and water disruption?
  • How can you, as a future leader contribute to the solution?
