Art for Air – Ben & Jerry’s and CAN’s Drawing Contest

“You scream, I scream, we all scream for…CLEAN AIR!”

That’s right, this summer Clean Air Network (CAN) is partnering up with Ben & Jerry’s to promote clean air awareness!

We are hosting a drawing competition so children can draw their artistic impressions of Hong Kong’s air.  Winners of the drawings will receive special ice-cream prizes from Ben & Jerry’s! While we see this as a chance to stimulate creativity, this is, more importantly, an opportunity to educate children about the hazardous air pollution conditions in Hong Kong.  Through these impressions we seek to better understand the younger generation’s views on how air pollution impacts their community.

CAN will be distributing worksheets to schools around Hong Kong to promote this fun learning opportunity about air pollution.  We ask that, as leaders of educational institutions, you encourage your students to get involved in this fun summer activity!!
