Draw the Earth
- Presenting Children’s Paintings of “The Future Earth” at COP 21 in Paris -

Draw_the_Earth_homepage“How will the earth of the future be?”  The future earth that children wish for is the one we should hand over to future generations.

The Draw the Earth project encourages children to post paintings of “the future earth” through the Draw the Earth website.


The posted paintings will be published at the project website and presented to representatives of the 195 United Nations member countries at a special event to be held in Paris from November 30 to December 11, in conjunction with COP 21.


The Draw the Earth project is to address anew the relationship between biodiversity and climate change and its importance on the occasion of COP 21.


Also, this project is a simple but powerful PR project that can deliver children’s messages to the world and address the representatives of the 195 UN member countries through creating an opportunity for them to see the children’s paintings.


The Draw the Earth project calls for children to post their paintings.  Please post the paintings at the following website!  (The deadline is November 25.)
