Panasonic "Eco Picture Diary" Global Contest Ceremony

© Panasonic

Panasonic organizes in cooperation with UNESCO a ceremony for the “Eco Picture Diary” Global Contest for children between the ages of 7 and 11.
Developed by Panasonic for primary school children between the ages of 7 and 11, the “kids school – eco learning” education program gives pupils the opportunity to learn about climate change and protecting our planet in an easy-to-understand and playful way. Within the framework of the agreement signed on 17 May 2011, Panasonic is now implementing this project in World Heritage sites in cooperation with the World Heritage Centre. School classes are gathered at the premises of a site where heritage and ecological behaviour are discussed. One of the activities of the program is to fill an “eco picture diary” where children write down and draw the activities they have done during the day and how they propose to contribute to protect their environment. With this diary, the children take part in a contest where the best illustrations are rewarded on the occasion of a ceremony.
Panasonic will hold in cooperation with the UNESCO World Heritage Centre the first of these ceremonies, at UNESCO headquarters on 8 February 2012.
37 countries participated in the contest since 2008. 160,000 people participated, 130,000 diaries were collected.
