OCEANS AND SEAS
IN VISUAL ARTS EXPRESSION OF THE YOUNG
Lisbon, July 15th - 31st
Zagreb, Oct 12th - 30th
This year, not only scientists and others engaged in the protection of the natural heritage of the Earth have focused their attention on seas and oceans, but also teachers and students in their quest for the protection of these important source of life and beauty for the future. This international exhibition, which has been organized jointly by professional associations of visual arts education and INSEA councils in Portugal and Croatia to be presented in both capitals Lisbon and Zagreb, reflects children's love for, and genuine interest in, the water resources of our planet.
The motive and, at the same time, incentive for this unique event to take place is that the United Nations has proclaimed 1998 as the Year of Seas and Oceans, Heritage for the Future.
