8th Kao International Environment Painting Contest for Children

8th Kao International Environment Painting Contest for Children

Kao Group conducts the Kao International Painting Contest every year since its launch in 2010 as part of its environmental initiatives. The theme for this year is “Together, we are eco-friendly”. Kao invites children to create works that express the small steps they can take every day, their dreams, and hopes for an eco-friendly world.

The contest aims to encourage children around the world to think seriously about protecting of the environment around them and to depict what they can do to conserve resources in everyday life, as they will also be the leaders of the future. Children are encouraged not only to take action as depicted in their paintings but also to encourage their friends and adults to take action in the same way.
