“我与红树林 Mangroves and I”
Cooperating with NGOs from China and ASEAN, we encourage children and teens from this area to join the Mangrove Art Competition. The artworks will be promoted on social media and exhibited at the mangrove forum of the CBD COP15 parallel forum to increase the regional influence of China-ASEAN on environmental conservation.
There is no limitation for painting style or material. The artwork needs to express the participant’s understanding and expectation of mangrove protection, such as mangrove landscapes, the daily life of mangrove communities, mangrove conservation works, and the bond between people and mangroves.
Children and teens between 6 and 16 in China and ASEAN countries are eligible.
