The Rio+20 Global Youth Music Contest is a global competition for young people organized by the International Association for the Advancement of Innovative Approaches to Global Challenges (IAAI) with a wide number of partners and youth networks on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development (Rio+20 Earth Summit) to be held in June 2012 in Brazil. This opportunity encourages youth to express their hopes, concerns and thoughts on future of our earth through the resonance of music as a powerful expression that incites commitment for sustainable development. The contest will collect musical messages from global youth exploring global solutions for sustainable development and the winners will win a trip to Rio de Janeiro to attend the Rio+20 Earth Summit in June 2012 and make the voices of global youth heard through their music.

This is your chance to inspire, connect and mobilize yourself to energize effective global governance for sustainable development and support the work of the United Nations system.

Be creative ! Think global ! Have your say now ! Let the music talk, let the rhythm play and let the world know what the youth have to say !

Deadline to submit your music online is 18. March 2012 at midnight GMT.
