Alongside our regular scientific offer during the two weeks of #vEGU21, we are very excited to announce the return of one of our most popular parallel events – the EGU Kids’ Art initiative! Read on to find out how your kids can get into our Kids Art Online Hall of Fame…
This year the EGU kid’s art activity is going online – again!
For 2021 the Natural Hazards and Cryospheric Sciences Divisions have teamed up to host the annual Kids’ Art initiative, which usually takes place at the General Assembly. The initiative was hosted online for the first time last year during #shareEGU20, and it was a great success! So why not repeat it this year? Challenge accepted, we said!
We have thought long and hard about a theme and how we could include all the different EGU Divisions, and it occurred to us that it has been a busy year for natural hazards and phenomena. From forest fires to volcanic eruptions, from iceberg calving to flooding, record-breaking temperatures, and intense hurricanes. Plenty to reflect upon and be inspired by, and a light bulb went on: ‘Extreme e-ART-h’ it will be!
The theme is set; now, we look forward to your child’s unique creation and interpretation of the wild, natural and extreme conditions surrounding us! Feel free to use whatever materials are at your disposal to help your kids get creative. Let their imaginations run wild to showcase Earth’s extreme phenomena and beyond!
During the two weeks of the virtual conference (19-30 April), we will share the kids’ creations on our social media accounts and in a special EGU Kids Art gallery on the official EGU blog (check out last year’s post for more inspiration!).
Send photographs of your Extreme e-ART-h pieces to firstname.lastname@example.org or add #EGUartKIDS to your social media post to be re-shared!
