The competition is a platform to highlight current environmental concerns and allows students from around the world to communicate and get involved to do something to make a difference.
Tim Pearson, Marcom for BIS said, “Last year we were one of five Regional Asia Winners for the Fisherman Friends Song. I am pleased to announce that posters from our recent Keep our Phuket Beaches Clean Poster Contest were entered and we won it.”
The goal of projectearth.net is to provide an online place for schools and students to share their environmental efforts and also connect with others to learn environmental effort ideas and help promote environmental education around the world.
There are currently 2,412 schools from 118 countries taking part in Project Earth projects.
