  • Description/Summary

    It’s sad but true: our world is under threat like never before. Globally we’re using all the planet’s resources faster than nature can restore itself. We are the first generation to know this and we could be the last that can do anything about it. Which is why we are passionate about supporting WWF – and want to inspire you to get painting.

    To kick off 2019, we would like to invite you to take part in Earth Hour with our first painting challenge for entries for the March issue, which is: Why does protecting nature matter to you?

    Your painting can encompass a wide variety of subjects – since nature affects everything – from wildlife to habitats to people and our homes. There’s something for everyone to get involved with – and get creating and entering! We will reveal a selection of the entries in the March issue of Paint to coincide with WWF’s Earth Hour.
