Junior 8 is an opportunity for pupils in your school to deepen their understanding of world issues, share their views on issues affecting children and represent the UK on the world stage. Teams will compete nationally for the opportunity to represent the UK at the Junior 8 Summit in Japan in July 2008.
Groups of four students aged 13-17 can enter as a ‘team’.
Teams put together an entry covering topics such as health, poverty, development and climate change.
The winning team of four will join teams from each of the G8 countries and young people representing each region of the world for the J8 world Summit in Japan between 2-10 July 2008.
