The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is seeking partnerships with the private sector and government agencies to endorse an art competition that it is anticipated will aid in funding International Volunteers’ Day which will in turn promote global awareness of Guyana’s natural beauty and highlight the importance of keeping the eco-system clean.
The “I love beautiful Guyana” art competition is part of highlighting the country’s unique beauty while promoting recognition and appreciation for natural splendour of the eco-system.
According to UNV Programme Officer Michiru Ito, people’s lack of knowledge pertaining to the valuable eco-system in Guyana contributed to present state of the capital city which is overrun by garbage. Thus the competition is an initial step to foster a healthy eco-system. Ito said that entities from all sectors of society are invited to join in the effort.
The competition, which is a collaborative effort between United Nations Development Programme, the Ministry of Culture’s volunteer support platform and other private sector enterprises, is open to schools and the general public. Successful participants will receive monetary rewards. The six-month project will conclude in December.
A greeting card project and clean-up exercise is also scheduled for December as a component of the activity.
