The Middle School Affiliated to Southwest Normal University in Chongqing organized poster design contest as part of the Climate Change Education for China project. This activity aims to encourage students to use their creativity and knowledge about climate change or other related themes such as water, energy, biodiversity, food and transportation. Below are some of the entries submitted by students:
Global warming, glaciers in the Arctic and Antarctic are melting and seawaters are engulfing the land. This poster shows a curved horizon imitating the shape of the earth and gives the visual effect of the sea immersing a beach.
The three umbrellas on top of each other is to demonstrate the severity of radiation. Yellow is a colour of warning; if mankind continue to recklessly destroy our environment then it will not be long before these types of umbrellas will be necessary to avoid radiation.
As the ozone layer decreases, the UV rays that reach the earth’s surface become stronger which could eventually prevent humans from entering direct sunlight at all.
Urbanisation has led to a serious overuse of the earth's water resources; this desertification could put an end to human civilization. This poster shows how desertification has made humans realise we need to make better use of the earth's resources.
This poster aims to record the impact of melting glaciers and rising sea levels. The rabbit is dizzy from the effects of industrial pollution and is perched on the last section of an oasis as it bids farewell to its friends.
This poster depicts the green branches of a tree twisted around the earth as it is suspended carelessly from our hands. Everyday global warming is increasing and we can only blame ourselves as humanity is gradually throwing our homeland into the fire. In an instant, these green vines will become dry sticks and leaves. However, as long as we still have one breath left, as long as there is a trace of life on the earth, we can do something to save our earth from this untold misery.
