New Bayer, United Nations Partnership Brings International Environment and Art Competition to Kansas City Area Elementary and Middle Schools
Date:12/17/2007

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Dec. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In an effort to help prepare today's students to become tomorrow's environmental stewards, Bayer Corporation and the United Nations Environment Programme's North American Regional Office (UNEP RONA) today announced a new World Environment Day partnership and launched the International Children's Painting Competition in Kansas City area schools.

The International Children's Painting Competition (ICPC) invites elementary and middle school students ages six to 14 from around the world to learn more about the environment and express that knowledge creatively through art. The ICPC is a signature program of UNEP's annual World Environment Day activities. Established by UNEP in 1972, World Environment Day is celebrated each year on June 5 in a different global host city. The theme of World Environment Day and the International Children's Painting Competition also changes each year. This year's theme is Climate Change: Actions We Can Take Now.

This partnership with UNEP RONA and the ICPC also marks the newest local programming component of Bayer's national award-winning Making Science Make Sense(R) initiative which advances science literacy across the United States through inquiry-based, hands-on science learning, employee volunteerism and public education.

"With this new partnership and by introducing the International Children's Painting Competition in our area schools, our goal is to help today's students make the important connection between science literacy and the environment," explained Chris Evans, Head of Industrial Operations, Region Americas, Bayer CropScience.

Joerg Ohle, President and General Manager, Bayer HealthCare LLC, Animal Health Division added, "It's also about reinforcing the notion that everyone has a responsibility when it comes to environmental and climate protection."
