Climate Change Art competition

1

Belize City, Belize – McNab Design Ltd. (MDL) and the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC) announce an Art Competition for citizens of CARIFORUM countries, using art as an instrument of communication in what is dubbed a “Speak Up” Campaign, aimed at boosting the voice of the Caribbean on climate change.

 

As a combination of island states and coastal territories, the Caribbean is a region most vulnerable to climate change, especially with our collective reliance on tourism and/or nature-based economies. This art contest is an activity for the project “Enhancing Climate Resilience in CARIFORUM Countries,” an initiative of the ACP Group of States funded by the European Union.

 

All CARIFORUM artists aged 3 years and older are called to submit original artwork that answers the questions: “How has climate change affected me? What is my message to the world on Caribbean climate change?” Entries will be evaluated based on: creativity, composition and clarity, theme interpretation, boldness, and issue impact.

 

 

MDL and CCCCC invite entries from all 16 CARIFORUM Member States: Antigua and Barbuda, The Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Cuba, Dominica, Dominican Republic,

  1. Climate Change:

    This should more suitably be dubbed ” WORLD CHANGER” since it will be a catalyst that propels the world into a Crisis never seen before.

    The stage is being set for the implementation of serious global policies that will appear to be an attempt to combat the dangerous effects of global warming. However, there are some subtle and evil intent behind the whole climate change plan.

    World leaders, religious leaders and environmentalists are all working together to formulate international policies to tackle climate change.

    I am warning the people: these policies will appear to be good for humanity and our planet, but in reality, it is the last attempt by the evil forces to dominate the minds of human even more and implement a politico-religious power that will bring this world to its final chaotic show down.

    Warning to the environment division: the COP26 meeting set for November will be a springboard for this movement.

    WORLD “CRYSIS”: KEEP YOUR EYES ON THIS CLIMATE CHANGE SAGA. IT IS GOING TO BRING ABOUT SERIOUS GLOABAL MEASURES THAT WILL FURTHER TURN THIS WORLD UPSIDE DOWN.
