Climate Change Picture Competition

Competition Extended by 1 Month - now open until 31 May 

One of the ways we are currently engaging with young people on the climate agenda is through a picture competition for local primary school children, which we are running over the Easter holidays. 

We want young people to draw a picture to show us what they think our community should look like to help our planet. What if instead of imagining how bad things could get, we imagined how good things could be. What if we solved climate change? It could mean fewer cars, more green spaces, buying more local produce, bus stop gardens, cycle cities and communities coming together.

Enter by 11:59pm Tuesday 31st May for a chance to win an eco goody bag!

How to enter

You must be between the ages of 4-11 and live in the borough or attend a primary school in the borough to enter.

To enter please send your completed picture, with your name, age, and contact details to us via email or post, before the deadline.
