Abhay, Shrish and Tara (2nd)

The year is 2050: I get out of bed and open my windows only to find a dying blue sky pleading for help. I turn my gaze to the garden where I see trees gasping for a breath of fresh air; an unnerving silence from the birds is soon broken by the deafening sound of churning machinery.
This will be the future of our planet if we progress at the current rate. The youth’s decisions and actions are what will determine the extent to which we can safeguard our planet for the forthcoming generation. It is up to us to stop this deterioration, to stop our planet from fading too early…

Maryam Y12 (Highly Commended)

The last seven years have been the warmest in human history, with 2016 and 2020 being the warmest years on record (NASA, n.d.). From the Rio Earth Summit to the Kyoto Protocol to the Paris Agreement, something seems to be hindering attempts at progress on global warming. It is clear that the issue is in need of political reform. As world politics is built upon nation states as political entities, this essay will argue that the nation state itself is counterproductive to making progress on this issue. Through examining the various UN climate change conferences, I will first discuss the rising trend in regionalism, what this means for nation states and the need more specifically for supranational institutions such as the EU. Then I will touch upon the role of the nation state in propagating the problematic ‘developed’ vs ‘developing’ dialogue that has polarised the many nations of the world on the issue of global warming. Finally, I will be examining the emergence of non-state actors, primarily non-governmental organisations, and what this reflects about the nation state as a political artefact.

Manaal Y12 (History: Runner up)

Emotions are the side effects of life: the lens through which we interpret events. Our reactions to life's obstacles are largely shaped by emotions, and consequently, these reactions then go onto shape history. Emotions, therefore, play an integral role in the study of the discipline. Yet, the elusive and ambiguous nature of emotions means they struggle to find a cemented place within the study. The subjectivity of emotions proves a barrier to historians in weighing their importance to the study of fact, due to their variance among different individuals and communities. Understanding the importance of emotional variations enriches our study of the past as examining history through the lens of those who lived it, better allows us to gauge historical sentiments, rather than studying the event in isolation. This essay will examine the partition of the Indian Subcontinent in 1947 and its perception by ordinary citizens, attempting to prove how emotional perspectives can give us a more comprehensive view of history whilst questioning stereotypes surrounding events, largely shaped by historians’ interpretations of events rather than attitudes at the time.
