Children are being offered the chance to have their art displayed in the surroundings of Belfast City Hall.

Lord Mayor John Finucane has challenged youngsters attending this year's council summer schemes to design a poster to promote the importance of eco-awareness and the environmental challenges facing Belfast.

Next month Councillor Finucane will select his favourites and the young artists will be invited along to a special unveiling ceremony in the Lord Mayor's Parlour to see their work go on display.

"Environmental issues are becoming increasingly important for us all as we become more aware of the impact they have on our city, so I think it's brilliant to get children involved and get them thinking about the environment," said Councillor Finucane.
