The International children’s Painting Competition on the Environment has been developed within the framework of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)’s TUNZA programme which is based on a strategy that aims to provide young people with information and tools on how to "treat Mother Earth with care" and how to Act for a better world. To reach its goal, UNEP works in partnership with Children from all over the world.
The competition is organized every year by UNEP, the Japan-based Foundation for Global Peace and Environment (FGPE), Bayer and Nikon Corporation.
It has been held since 1991 and has received more than 3 million entries from children in over 150 countries.
The theme of the 24th painting competition will be “Energy: We have the power!” and children will have until 31 May 2016 to submit their entries.
