To celebrate World Environment Day Jetwing Vil Uyana organised a competition for Kimbissa Junior School, Digampathaha Junior School and Udawelayayagama Junior High School. 

The competition was based on themes surrounding current environmental issues and was categorised into Art, Poetry and Speech. A total of 137 children participated in the competition. The awards ceremony was held recently amidst the presence of Jetwing Hotels Chairman Hiran Cooray and many other dignitaries. 

Cooray commenting on this special occasion said, “We are dependent on the environment for everything, so it is our responsibility to make every effort to protect planet earth. Interactive competitions of this nature encourage the youth to step outdoors and appreciate nature’s beauty and importance. We believe bringing out the natural creativity embedded in these children helps generate new concepts and ideas for preserving the environment. Through them their families would also understand the importance of being responsible so that our footprint as a community is positive. Sustainable tourism has been close to our hearts for over 45 years and apart from being responsible in our own activities we always want to guide the community towards conserving nature.”
