Have you made a video, taken a picture, told a story or written a blog about something that can move the planet forward? It can win you a cash prize and a trip to U.N. headquarters in New York, where you will get a chance to present it to experts in global development.

Your story can be something you did for an internship, a class, a school TV show or website. It can be about lots of things — new modes of transportation, awesome ways to generate or conserve energy, smart technologies that will improve our lives, architectural and engineering innovations, urban farms and food.  

Bottom line: I want to feature your cool ideas that will help build, retrofit or invent … sustainable cities! 

Check out Planet Forward’s Storyfest Award. Finalists will be featured online and at our Sustainable Cities Summit in Washington on April 21, when the winners will be selected.
