The European Union Delegation in Azerbaijan announces the conduct of a drawing competition for children.

The competition called "Explore your Environment" aims to demonstrate through paintings how children in Azerbaijan perceive the environment around them, what they like and what is of concern to them.

"Azerbaijan has a very rich cultural heritage and this kind of competitions helps to discover and better understand the environment around us. It helps to motivate the young generation of Azerbaijanis to express themselves and to communicate through the language of art. "We believe that art and culture can unite people and help understand and appreciate the world around", said Malena Mård, EU Ambassador to Azerbaijan.
