Date:12/17/2007

PITTSBURGH, 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 Pittsburgh 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, while reinforcing the notion that everyone has a responsibility when it comes to environmental and climate protection," explained Dr. Attila Molnar, President and CEO, Bayer Corporation.

Elisabeth Guilbaud-Cox, Deputy Director of UNEP's Regional Office for North America, added, "We are extremely proud and excited to be working with Bayer here in North America and commend the company for supporting an out-of- the-box
