Mayor of Wyndham City Peter Maynard, Deputy Mayor Jasmin Hill, Councillor Susan Mclntyre, Youth Development Team Leader Sarah and Community Learning Center Pat attended the opening ceremony and discussed with the participating young artists how climate change is impacting our world through the eyes of our youngest community members. In his speech, Mayor Peter sincerely and warmly encouraged many young artists from all over Australia to create with their hearts. He highly praised the holding of this event as very innovative, practical and educational, and called on everyone to take care of the environment. Then the outstanding student representatives of Just Art Studio gave wonderful speeches from different perspectives: water resources protection, marine resource protection, environmental protection, climate change and sustainable development. Hundreds of parents and children who came to watch the exhibition attentively listened to these plans and advocacy for the future, and responded with enthusiastic applause. After the opening ceremony, outstanding student representatives turned into on-site tour guides, leading everyone to appreciate the precious and creative works. There were impression abstraction, illustrations and stories, fine colored pencil depictions, and marker acrylic dazzling colors. From the sky to the land and the ocean, from plants to animals and humans, each work was thought-provoking and inspiring. Everyone seriously thought about the past, present and future, and there were still many audiences who lingered at the end of the event.
