Teenage art exhibition held to call attention to refugee issue in Pakistan

From July 1 to 2, youth charity art exhibition Empowering with Love: Pakistan sponsored by the China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation (CBCGDF) and supported by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), was held in Beijing, collecting works created by hundreds of children and teenagers aged 4-14 from 25 cities across China.

A total of 600 works were exhibited in the children’s art, digital and refugee handicraft exhibition area, reflecting the UNHCR’s initiative to establish a human community awareness of refugees and global green energy among children and young people.

UNHCR Representative in China, Vanno Noupech, made a video speech for this event, emphasizing “I hope that all young people participating in this exhibition can continue to use their brushes to convey love and strength by arousing the attention of refugees and environmental issues through art.”

“It is truly expected that by collecting teenager’s creative artistic works, we can show our new generation’s understanding of Pakistani refugee and environmental issues, revealing their awareness of the United Nations’ sustainable development goals,” noted an officer from CBCGDF.
