With the school competition on development policy ""All for One World - One World for All"", every two years pupils in grades 1 to 13 are called upon to discuss topics of global development.

The aim of the competition is to support the Global Development learning area in all classes and to sensitise and activate children and young people for the One World. For all students who want to participate in the competition, whether text or image, photo or film, artwork, theatre or music piece, digital or analogue work - the competition entry can be submitted in any conceivable form. Every thought about learning global development counts! In order to promote this learning area, the competition also offers extensive and free materials for integrating the topic into the classroom and is thus aimed especially at teachers and other multipliers.

Money and prizes in the total value of more than 50,000 euros and an invitation to the award ceremony in Berlin is up for grabs. Every thought in the Global Development learning area counts - so take up this fantastic opportunity to learn about global development and further your interest in development policy topics.
