JQA and IQNET announce the winning entries for the 21st International Environmental Children’s Drawing Contest
Bern, 17 August 2021 – The long wait is over for the children who submitted their entries to the 21st International Environmental Children’s Drawing Contest. A total of 88 winners and 84 special awards were named from over 14,000 drawings received coming from 80 countries.
Our Earth in 2030 – the theme of the 21st contest was adopted from the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with the aim to encourage awareness and action among children, together with their families and educational institutions towards this target.
Japan Quality Assurance Organization (JQA) as the leading agency of this contest, believes that this competition incites children to take a fresh look on the preciousness of nature, as well as deepen their understanding of the global environment.
Alex Stoichitoiu, President of IQNET highlighted that the JQA International Environmental Children's Drawing Contest fits perfectly with the essence of IQNET -- "Together, we build value and trust around the world, for people and businesses, to create a sustainable future". The initiative taps the never-ending capacity of children to dream for a better world, and these unbiased perceptions urge us - as current caretakers - to do appropriate actions.
