On 22 January 2014, YPSA and William Carey Academy, Chittagong, Bangladesh jointly organised a Climate Change Art Competition with the support of the Coastal Kids Project. Students from classes 5 and 6 of William Carey Academy enthusiastically participated in this competition which focused on the topic of “Climate Change and Climate Displaced Peoples”. This was designed to build awareness about climate change and encourage students to engage further with this issue, which is already posing a serious threat to thousands, if not millions, of people throughout Bangladesh.
Of the 50 students that participated in the competition, 10 students were awarded for outstanding performance. First, second and third place were awarded to Adeeb Chowdury, Raima Mallick and Agatha Talapatra respectively. DS would like to congratulate all of the 50 students who participated in this competition for their remarkable efforts. Keep up the great work!
