Words of Unity
Poetry Competition

Page divider

At Global Acts of Unity we use the power of words every day to help spread a message of unity, tolerance and understanding. Our national poetry competition asked young people to share their own words about what ‘unity’ means to them.

With more than 2,400 poems submitted, the Global Acts of Unity team are astounded by the quality from across the country.

Thank you to everyone for entering.

Words of Unity

This book features the very best writing of the next generation of poets. The Words of Unity competition has given students from around the UK a voice.

Arguably, there has never been a better time to discuss unity, given the many challenges in the world today. This book of 50 poems showcases the role that unity plays through the lens pf the UK’s youth.

All proceeds go to funding the inspirational work of Global Acts of Unity.
