The “Sustain Your History” contest aims to move children and young people to build a sustainable planet. Developing the concept “Together we are the Whole” we want to strengthen the belief that small linked actions become a strong current both for good and, unfortunately, harmful actions. The idea is to raise awareness among children and young people about the impact of their actions on the world around them, raising awareness about their “environmental footprints“. By changing the mentality of the young, they will become replicators of this information through their own stories.

The contest consists of a selection of story’s created by children and young people within the theme: SUSTAINABILITY and ENVIRONMENT. To participate, all they need is a good idea and to send it as a video testimony that will be available on Pequeno Cineasta’s channel and thereafter released for the public to vote for. The winning story is transformed into a short film that will be made by students who have already participated in the Pequeno Cineasta Workshop.

The winner is awarded a full scholarship to the workshop, in addition to seeing his/her idea transformed into a film that will be screened at Pequeno Cineasta International Film Festival.
