Title: The Green World
The Green World is an international contest of children’s and youths’ artistic creativity. This year the project celebrates 10 years of existence. The contest is held each year in conjunction with Envirofilm (international environmental film festival). The message is to instill in children a love of nature and the environment by fostering their creative and artistic self-expression. Every year children from Slovakia and abroad have the opportunity to draw, to photograph or to film their own perspectives according a chosen theme appealing to environmental problems. This project focuses on the children’s view of the world and their reception of nature and awards the messages in their art. Ten years of the Green World means 23,848 children’s works from everywhere in the world.
