UN House welcomes school students on Children’s Day
19 November 2018
The theme for this year’s painting and slogan competition was “BEAT PLASTIC POLLUTION” and the 12 winning slogans and paintings will be incoporated into the annual UN-NPSC calendar. The UN House was bustling with energy with participants from over 80 Delhi-NCR schools eager to express their concerns over the use of single use plastic through art.
Collins Dictionary has named “single-use” as the word of 2018, which reflects the increasing global awareness in environmental issues. The term refers to products that are often made of plastic and used just once, only to be thrown away after, rendering them unsustainable and harmful to the planet.
