The winners of “Think NaturAL” art contest were announced on Sunday, June 5th 2016 in Tirana, during the closing event of Environmental Film Festival Albania 2016. The young expressed their opinion on the relation between humans and nature – seeing it heavily misbalanced and harmful for the environment. Most of the works are calling for urgent action aware of the need for a change of human behaviour.
On the World Environment Day celebrated 5 June, Caterina Carugati NaturAL Team Leader and Ervin Shehaj Executive Director of the “Green Line Albania” announced the winners of the contest. “Our goal was to raise awareness on the importance of biodiversity conservation among young generations”-said Carugati, emphasizing the need for more attention of the public and media on environment protection in Albania. The participation of so many young artists was a positive achievement of this contest and a strong indicator of youth’s opinion.
Organised by NaturAL Project in collaboration with Green Line Albania, and with the great support of the National Agency for Protected Areas, the contest received more than 120 drawings from all over Albania. The selected submissions were exhibited from May 30 to June 4, 2016, at the Multifunctional Centre TEN and Reja and submitted to public voting. On Saturday the selected drawings were displayed at the Cloud exhibit in Tirana, with the kind support of the Tirana Parks and Recreation Agency.
