Climate change is one of the most significant global issues of our time and we are all responsible for helping to solve it.
The Cambridge IGCSE Learner Award 2023 for Action on Climate Change is an excellent opportunity to show how you and your classmates are tackling one of the world’s most important humanitarian crises. This new award invites Cambridge International students from across Southeast Asia and Pacific to submit a short video to raise awareness of your action on climate change.
At Cambridge International, we believe that by increasing the quality and accessibility of education and developing people’s knowledge, attitudes and behaviours towards climate change, the world can see more effective, and swifter action. By working together with Cambridge schools our mission is to give a voice to the world’s future leaders and policy-makers and inspire them to make a difference.

The Cambridge IGCSE Learner Award 2023 for Action on Climate Change:
Entries will be shortlisted by a panel of international judges from Cambridge University Press & Assessment. In Round One our regional panel will shortlist the top 3 entries from each country. The entries selected in Round One will proceed to Round Two, where the judges will select the Best in Country winners and Best in Region winner. The winning entries will receive:
*Vouchers may be presented in the equivalent local currency. Total prize to be split between team members.
All shortlisted entries will receive a certificate of recognition for their entry. The winners and shortlisted entries may be displayed on the Cambridge International website and feature in future publicity materials. The winners, and those that were shortlisted, will be notified by email. Winners will be presented their awards in late 2023.
Our judges are looking for entries that tell the story of a student-led climate action initiative that is making a difference to your school, community or globally. Your entry should clearly explain what the problem is and how you are addressing it, including an indication of the impact that your action has had. The winning entries will be the ones who make the audience and judges inspired and enthused about your climate action project. Entries should be clear and cohesive and encourage other school students to start their own climate action project. A passion for Action on Climate Change will shine through in the overall winning entry. Your video submission should be in English. Read the Criteria for judging (PDF, 218KB).
Teachers are required to submit entries on behalf of their students. You should ensure that their entries meet the rules of participation.
