Council Holds Poster Competition for World Environment Day

Logan City Council’s annual World Environment Day calendar competition opened today, January 28, with hundreds of students from schools across Logan expected to take part.

This year’s theme is ‘Threatened species of Logan’.

Logan City Council chose the “threatened species” theme in line with the United Nations World Environment Day theme for 2020, which was biodiversity.

The theme reflects the United Nations message and encourages students to learn more about Logan’s native plant and animal species, and how they are important to our local biodiversity.

As part of the competition, students are encouraged to think about how they can illustrate the plight of at-risk native animals or plants.

The theme also aligns with Council’s corporate plan to become a green and renewable city and complements several projects being delivered this year.

More information on these strategies and projects can be found on here.

The 13 winners of the calendar competition will see their creations illustrate the cover, and each of the 12 months of Council’s 2022 World Environment Day Calendar.

Competition winners are also awarded prizes at the annual Logan Eco Action Festival (LEAF), which will be held in May.

The calendar competition closes on Wednesday, April 21.
