About the project

Every year the United Nations celebrates World Environment Day on June 5th, encouraging action and raising awareness towards the environment. This inspires people and organizations all around the world to become “agents of change”.

In 2014 the Kronospan Foundation invited all employees of Kronospan and their families to join the celebration. To promote the notion of environmental sustainability within the members of the Kronospan community, the Kronospan Foundation launched a contest for the children of Kronospan employees.

Children, up until the age of 16, were encouraged to create, by any technique, a piece of art work conveying the message “Think Green For Our Future”. Through their painting, graphic, drawing or collage they should identify the problems faced by the environment today and show, in a creative way, how grown-ups can take action to protect the earth for future generations.

The contest was concluded in an award ceremony celebrating World Environment Day on June 5th, 2014 and crowning the winner at each local Kronospan site. All participants were be rewarded with small ECO prizes, while winners received a bicycle as the grand prize.
