Guidelines for Art Competition

Overview

Sustainable energy is an important aspect of a low-carbon economy. Renewable energy and energy efficiency, the two pillars of sustainable energy, are essential for energy diversification, energy security, climate change mitigation and overall sustainability. The Guyana Energy Agency (GEA), as part of its ‘Energy Awareness’ activities for 2018, is launching an Art Competition for youth between the ages of 15-19 under the theme ‘Powering a Green Guyana’.  

This art competition is organized in an effort to sensitize youth about energy use, environmental issues and sustainable development and their inextricable links at a national level. It also aims to facilitate discussions on such topics among students and teachers with encouraged learning throughout the process. Additionally, the Agency is seeking to acquire innovative designs that may be used to further promote its cause and educate the general Guyanese public about alternative energy and energy conservation.
