The British International Education Association (BIEA) is a not-for-profit organisation with head office in London. Our mission is to promote British education to emerging international education markets, primarily in China and UAE, but also in other countries. BIEA works to meet the needs and challenges in the international education. 

Theme of 2022-23 competition is: "Developing solutions for sustainable cities!"


Climate change. It is recognised as a global emergency, and as the increasingly catastrophic weather hits countries around the world, the droughts, floods and fires indicate that the environment is changing. 

The young people of today will live in the changing world of tomorrow. The world and humans need to adapt our ways of life so that the future is sustainable.

The BIEA 2022-23 Youth STEAM Competition gives young people, the adults of tomorrow, an opportunity to cast their minds into the future, and use creative foresight to help come up with ideas to ensure that humans of the future can live in harmony with the planet.

Cities have high densities of people living, working and travelling in one area, to the detriment of the natural world. In this year’s competition, we would like you to focus on a city close to where you live. Can we use innovative ideas and green technologies to ensure sustainable buildings, landscapes and transport in cities, so that humans and nature can co-exist in harmony? Can we develop a future where fossil fuels have become a thing of history, and only renewable energy sources and sustainable materials are used?
