Greetings from the Sustainable Development Policy Institute!

SDPI is pleased to announce a Paintings/poster competition on "Chemicals Impacts on Environment and Children Health – Beware of Mercury" and request nominations/entries from brilliant students of your institute. The last date for submission of entries is 10th October, 2013.


The competition seeks to raise awareness on negative effects of chemicals especially mercury on environment and health. We anticipate that the contest would lead to greater understanding and support for minimizing chemicals production and use (especially mercury) for protection of environment, healthy living and sustainable development.
