Have your say on sustainability, Eurostar and the Young People's Trust for the Environment's competition for young people aged 11-18 is now open for entries, giving the future generation of voters the chance to share their views with MEPs in Brussels.

For the competition, young people aged 11-18 are invited to create a short video clip sharing their views on the environmental issues that concern them.  Three lucky winners will be given the unique opportunity to travel to the European Parliament in Brussels to air their views in front of an audience of MEPs.

Since the annual competition launched two years ago, MEPs have been challenged by budding young politicians on a range of topics from marine fishing and fracking to recycling and public transport. A short film telling the story of the 2013 European Parliament visit can be seen here. 

In addition to the Brussels trip, winners will stand to receive £250 vouchers for their school to spend on technology equipment at Curry’s or PC World and return Eurostar tickets to Paris for four people.

For more information on the competition and how to take part, please visit eurostar-ypte.com.  The deadline for entries is 24 October 2014.
