1 24 th International Children s Painting Competition: Guidelines 2015 We have the power! 1

2 Introduction The International Children s Painting Competition (ICPC) is an annual activity that has been organized by UNEP and the Foundation for Global Peace and Environment (FGPE) since Over the years the competition has been inspirational, receiving over 3 million submissions from more than 100 countries. Through painting, the competition encourages children worldwide to share their views on different environmental thematic issues. This in turn inspires people all over the world to see the environment through the eyes of children. The paintings portray the hopes, fears and also suggest solutions from the children for environmental issues. In addition, UNEP aims to increase environmental awareness and action among children through this competition. Theme We have the power! In support of the UN Decade of Sustainable Energy for All, this year s competition theme is We have the power! Energy is at the heart of most critical economic, social, environmental and development issues facing the world today. Sustainable energy clean, renewable, efficient, affordable and reliable energy services is indispensable for global prosperity. It can also lead to a sustainable future for all with multiple benefits for development, including on human health, environment and climate change mitigation. The decisions we take today on how we produce, consume and distribute energy will profoundly influence our ability to eradicate poverty, support sustainable development opportunities and respond effectively to climate change. Addressing these challenges is beyond the sole reach of governments; it will take the active engagement of all sectors of society including local communities, civil society and the private sector. Renewable energy Energy from renewable resources wind, water, the sun, biomass and geothermal energy is sustainable, inexhaustible and clean. Renewable energy currently constitutes 15 per cent of the global energy mix. Renewable energy products and services constitute a rapidly growing segment of the international marketplace. The costs of technologies to capture that energy are rapidly falling and becoming economically competitive with fossil fuels, while reducing climate change. Investing in renewable energy creates jobs, fosters economic growth and sustainable development, and improves energy security for countries that lack domestic fossil fuel resources, among others. Energy efficiency Energy efficiency getting more from our existing resources increases global resource productivity, supports economic growth, reduces costs for all citizens and protects the environment. Investing in efficiency is critical to meeting future energy demand. 2

3 Improving energy efficiency has the clearest impact on improving human wellbeing, saving money, improving business results, and delivering more services for consumers better refrigerators that cost the same but use less energy; new vehicle designs that travel farther on less fuel; and buildings that require less energy to heat and cool. Investing in efficiency is critical to meeting future energy demand and mitigating climate change. It reduces greenhouse gas emissions and improves productivity. Efficiency also makes renewable energy more affordable shrinking the size of the solar panel needed to power a lamp, for example. Moving to sustainable energy and using it efficiently makes sense in a resource constrained world. Sustainable energy is the golden thread that connects economic growth, increased social equity, and an environment that allows the world to thrive. In developing countries, the savings from energy efficiency could help make modern energy services available to those who lack it. In developing countries and more industrialized countries alike, investments in energy productivity can create new jobs, foster sustainable development and economic growth, and reduce energy costs for families and businesses. Adopting cost-effective standards for a wider range of technologies could, by 2030, reduce global projected electricity consumption by buildings and industry by 14 per cent, avoiding roughly 1,300 mid-size power plants. Sharing and adopting these practices more widely among nations and industrial sectors can make energy more reliable and less expensive to homes and businesses. More information on sustainable energy can be found from the following resources: 3
