The exhibition is co-organized by the Vietnam Women's Museum, Talky English and the Education for Nature Vietnam (ENV) for students, with a view to raising people’s awareness to promote nature conservation and combating wildlife trade.

Some 40 students aged between 6 and 14 have been trained in communication knowledge and techniques to become project communicators. They had a week of practical experience at the center for rescue and conservation of wildlife in the Cuc Phuong National Park.

These children’s graphic works consisting video, pictures and paintings as well as writings on social networks are aimed at encouraging the community to participate in the above-mentioned campaign.

The Vietnam Women's Museum also taught students how to organize an exhibition and organize interactive activities to spread the wildlife protection message more widely to the community and raise people's awareness of environmental protection and life on the green planet.

The exhibition displays about 70 works including paintings, posters, photos, videos which have been created by the students based on their experiences while participating in the project and their hands-on experience.

The exhibition guides are the students themselves who spread their message to the public and will organize daily painting and poster activities, as well as nature conservation awareness games for everyone.

The exhibition will run until August 1, 2020.
