In collaboration with the British Embassy in Vietnam and the British Council in Vietnam, Nguyen Sieu School in Ha Noi launches the drawing contest "Creative Earth" to raise awareness of the young generation about climate change and the COP26 Conference. The competition is organized for young Vietnamese children under 16 in Vietnam and others countries from September 21 to October 24, 2021.

COP26 is the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties, hosted by the UK, in partnership with Italy, held in Glasgow (UK). This climate change conference is among the largest international meetings in the world, involves officials from every country in the world, representatives from civil society, the public, and the global news media.

According to a UNICEF report (August 2021), children and young people living in Viet Nam are among those most at risk of the impacts of climate change, threatening their health, education, and protection.
With innovative ideas and boundless energy, Vietnamese youth are critical for advancing a better future. They are young ambassadors who can spread positive influence to their families, schools, and communities through simple daily climate actions.
To raise awareness about climate change and COP26 Conference, British Embassy Hanoi, in collaboration with British Council Viet Nam and Nguyen Sieu School in Ha Noi, launches the "Creative Earth Art Competition".
