As one of the “greatest” inventions of the 20th century, plastic has made life easier. Nowadays our life would be difficult without plastics.

However, due to unsustainable patterns of production and consumption and inefficient waste management systems, plastic waste has been invading the environment and the oceans, becoming a threat for the environment and human beings.

To raise awareness among teenagers, the EU project "Rethink Plastics - Circular Economy Solutions to Marine Litter" is supporting an art campaign. This campaign aims to raise public awareness on challenges resulting of plastic pollution and to encourage them to take actions to solve this problem. The ultimate goal is to ensure a “plastic-free” future for young generations.

We invite teenagers aged 6-16 to participate in this activity. Works must be submitted before 20 January and the best ones will receive a special gift box of the Rainforest Ecology Lab, which are planned to be exhibited in Tiantongyuan Cultural Centre in Beijing between 15 February and 15 March.

Learn how to participate here.
