 The Trust for Sustainable Living, based in the UK, is delighted to announce that Jasmine Goddard, a student at the International School of Phnom-Penh, has received a Honourable Mention in the Trust for Sustainable Living 2014 International Schools Essay Competition – Secondary School age category. 

Students participating in the competition were invited to write an essay outlining what ‘sustainable living’ meant to them, and the steps they believe their respective country should be taking in order to achieve it.  

Jasmine has been invited to receive her certificate at the International Schools Debate and Awards Ceremony, at which the overall winner of the competition will be announced, alongside the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners for the Primary (ages 7-11) and Secondary (ages 11-17) categories.

Karl Hansen, Director at The Living Rainforest (Trust for Sustainable Living), said: “As organiser and one of judges for the International Schools Essay Competition & Debate, I would like to thank all of the students who entered.  This year, we received more than a thousand essays from students in over 70 countries around the world, a great many of which contained a huge array of imaginative ideas for sustainable living, in addition to being of excellent quality and composition.

 “The Trust for Sustainable Living’s 2014 International Schools Essay Competition & Debate has a very strong international perspective which gives students the opportunity to work with some of the best young minds around, drawing inspiration from others, sharing knowledge and fostering cooperation.  We therefore very much hope to see Jasmine participating in our International Schools Debate which will take place in the United Kingdom in July.”
