The theme for the competition is “biodiversity” and what it means to young people around the world.
For example, in their artwork, children and youth may explore the amazing variety of life on the planet, the richness of ecosystems, the reasons why biodiversity is being lost, or the things people are doing to protect biodiversity.
The winning artwork may be used to make the activity badges and logos for the “Young Hands Together for Diversity” initiative.
All submissions will be considered for use in “Young Hands Together for Diversity” posters, publications and T‐shirts and in other United Nations publications.
The competition is open to children and young people between 6 to 20 years in three age categories: 6‐10 years, 11‐15 years and 16‐20 years.
The organizers of the competition are Bioversity International (BI), the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).
The competition is an activity of the Youth and United Nations Global Alliance (YUNGA) and The Green Wave for biodiversity.
Application deadline: 15 June.
