The 24th International Contest of Children´s and Youth´s Artistic Creativity

GREEN WORLD 2019

Theme:  The air we breathe, the air we live in!

Air is present all around us, we feel it, but we cannot touch or see it. It is the foundation of our life. Every day we breathe in and out 20,000 times, which is equivalent to about 12,000 liters of air. Air quality has a direct impact on our physical and mental well-being. However, the air we breathe in is constantly changing. Urban growth, change in the Earth's surface and climate change, all caused by the increase of the global population, change the composition of the air we live in. These changes can greatly affect weather and climate, but also our health and the functionality of ecosystems. For this reason, the state of air should not be indifferent to us. Air and its pollution is becoming an acute and global problem. The air we breathe may contain a number of contaminants, for example: a mixture of solid particles, droplets of liquid and gases. The main polluters are industry, transport, agriculture, burning waste, heating facilities. It is necessary to take steps in order to protect not only ourselves but also our environment. What can we do to breathe healthier air?
