SR Ministry of Environment and Slovak Environment Agency organize the

21st Annual International Competition of Fine-Art Creativity of Children and Youth

GREEN WORLD /Zelený Svet/ 2016


The patronage over the competition is awarded by the European Commission Representation in Slovakia, Slovak Commission for UNESCO and European Environment Agency EEA.


The competition aims to instil in children love for nature and the environment by creating habits and skills in artistic expression. The 21st year topic is:

Parks and gardens - my best place to relax

A growing percentage of the human population ceases to go to nature outside his/her residence. Therefore, let us try to focus on the environment in our neighbourhood. Nowadays, in a sort of cyber time, when we are increasingly drawn into the virtual world, we are interested in your view of the surrounding countryside.

Let´s try to catch- through drawings, paintings, graphics, photographs, animated film and comics- beautiful parks and gardens, which adorn the house or block of flats surroundings, and bring not only benefits, but also a treat for the eyes and soul.
