Speaking 4 the Planet (S4P) is a public speaking, spoken word and visual arts competition. It provides opportunities for students to express their ideas for a better world.
With the UN’s World Environment Day theme as a starting point, students prepare and deliver punchy, quirky, creative and pointed speeches, spoken word performances, impromptu dramas or artworks. They are designed to influence the thoughts, emotions and actions of the viewing audience and, of course, the judging panel.
