STUDENTS from secondary schools and tertiary institutions are invited to share their environmental protection experiences in an essay-writing competition organised by Green Power. The 20 winners will have the opportunity to participate in a summit conference in which three environmental activists from Malaysia, South Korea and Nepal will conduct workshops. The conference is aimed at stimulating participants to a higher level of environment consciousness. Summit project officer Yau Kung-yuen said entrants should not take the essay-writing as too much of an academic task but rather concentrate on making tight relevance to the questions. 'What we try to achieve in the summit is to stimulate students' awareness of the environment and get them actively involved,' Mr Yau said.
