fortune_cookies2.gifCHANGING BEHAVIOUR is hosting a competition for slogans, maxims, sayings and 'bons mots' that reflect the best insights in an emerging culture of energy saving practice.

You can enter your saying in any European language, but more people will appreciate your wisdom if you can translate or paraphrase it in English, too.

Rules of the competition:

  • First 10 entries are eligible for a draw for a 'quick prize'
  • We will organise a vote for the best saying in spring 2010. The 10 most popular entries will be awarded in autumn 2010 with a collected book of best sayings ("Little wise book of energy efficiency practice") as well as with 20 'fortune cookies' with the sayings inside.
  • No copyright - anyone can use the saying you submit, and you can use any of the sayings you find for any legitimate purpose.

Please enter your favourite slogan here: Slogan competition entry

To hear is to forget, to see is to remember and to do is to understand - Confucius
