Creative competition: Sustainable future is
looking for creative heads

How do you advertise for a sustainable world and get to the heart of sustainability? Draw our attention to what is important for you: show us what today’s world needs to exist tomorrow. How can you win young people to re-think and to behave in a sustainable manner in daily life, when shopping, on holiday or elsewhere?

How do you wish to live?
In September of last year, the governments of this world met in Johannesburg to discuss what is to be done to structure a better world for tomorrow, i.e. more a sustainable one. One thing has been emerging in this respect now for some time: sustainability concerns everyone. With the way we live, we can all make a contribution towards putting sustainability into action.

Open-minded thinker?
The German Council for Sustainability is looking for innovative, open-minded thinkers with fresh ideas. Take the future into your hands and develop a vision for yourself and the coming generations: advertise for a balanced life. Do you wish to join us? Show us how you advertise innovatively for the environment, the future and for social questions. Sustainability is the decisive key word: create a far-reaching message which is sustainable. How do you wish to live?
   Soliciting sustainability
The best participants will be invited to attend the Council’s Annual Congress in Berlin on 1st October 2003. The motives will be presented there and the winners announced. The three winning motives will be distributed throughout the whole of Germany as postcards through Edgar Cards.
