RNG acts as a federal partner of the project. The company allocated financial resources for the event and awarding the winners in all approved nominations.

The Ecology is Everyone's Business prize was established by the Federal Service for Supervision of Natural Resources (Rosprirodnadzor) to stimulate the interest of teenagers from 7 to 16 years old who care about the environment. The new season began in early March, during this time participants from 85 regions of Russia and 17 foreign countries have sent more than 15,000 works. This is one and a half times more than during the whole period of accepting applications last year. Teenagers from Moscow, the Krasnodar Territory, and the Rostov and Novosibirsk Regions are the most active participants in the project.

They put their creative work and environmental initiatives, aimed at the preservation and care of nature, on the websites. Applications can be submitted in nine categories. At the moment, Eco Focus and Eco Drawing the most popular ones.

“The main goal of our project is to involve children and teenagers in the environmental agenda by supporting their eco-activity in popular formats. We are glad that our younger generation cares about the world they live in. They show through personal example what they are willing to do to change it for the better. Thus, together we prove that ecology is everyone's business,” said Rosprirodnadzor’s Head Svetlana Radionova.

The most talented and active participants will visit the Orlyonok youth and children's centre. This year 150 children will take such an opportunity. Applications from the participants will be accepted until the first of October. The results will be announced in November after the jury has finished its work.
