February 2 is the World Wetlands Day!
This year, SABUKO celebrates it with a competition for school students!
- Wetlands are home to 40% of the world’s species.
- They protect us from floods.
- Help regulate the climate.
- Store and clean the water.
- Give us food.
- Are very important part of our economy.
Wetlands are one of the most valuable and important ecosystems. But the world’s wetlands are under threat. Very often, people consider them as useless and lose of space, and drain or pollute them.
The number of wetlands is decreasing rapidly!
And the species that depend on them are threatened too.
Students can join the global campaign. Create and share artwork and tell others about their feelings and ideas.
Age: 10-16 years old
Deadline: February 16
Must include: Student’s name and last name, age, parent or teacher’s contact information, region (optional).
Artwork should be sent via: google forms link
The results will be published on our official facebook page till February 26: https://www.facebook.com/sabuko.org/
Participants have to create drawing or painting about wetlands. The topic for 2021 is freshwater. But the participants are free to choose another topic that interests them more (species or habitat loss, pollution etc). Or simply describe the beauty and usefulness of wetlands.
Artwork must be titled and followed by description (no more than 100 words). Why did you choose this topic? Why is it interesting and important for you? If describing specific problem, where do you see the solution?
So, draw your canvases and tell others about wetlands!
Your work will be placed on SABUKO’s website: https://sabuko.org/
