As art, giant panda conservation extends beyond borders!

Of the 17 global goals of development, giant panda conservation is the common goal of human development and should be conducted without borders. Moreover, giant panda art is a different way to learn more about giant pandas, a flagship species among endangered animals. The Global Naming of ‘UNDP Pambassadors’ and Global Search for ‘UNDP Panda Envoys’ was officially launched.

The “Signing Ceremony of UNDP Pambassador” was held in the moon delivery room of the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. It can be described as the cutest signing ceremony with panda characteristics. The participants were AgiVeres, Country Director of UNDP, Dr. Zhang Zhihe , Director of Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding and the adorable twin baby pandas born to Qinghe, They were the first two pambassadors in the history of UNDP. In this most adorable signing ceremony, the twin pandas “signed” the agreement with their paw prints, marking the official start of the ceremony.

Conserving Giant pandas without borders and serving as an envoy in the home of giant pandas

Using the Internet as the major platform, this activity will focus on four factors including giant panda conservation, culture, art and tourism, and launch four series of activities including the Global Naming of ‘UNDP Pambassadors’ and the Global Search for ‘UNDP Panda Envoys, “as art, panda conservation is beyond borders” – the world tour of giant panda arts, the global collection for The Song of Pandas, as well as the exploration journey to the home of pandas. "
 

Panda art expresses a culture of black and white in this wonderful space and time.

The giant panda is not only an endangered species of wild animals in the world, but also a unique and charming cultural symbol.

As one of the experiential activities of “UNDP panda ambassador”, “as art, panda conservation is beyond borders” – the world tour of giant panda arts will transmit the panda culture to an adoring and enthusiastic public.

As music extends beyond borders, Huang Xiaomao, an international musician, joins the production of The Song of Pandas.

Music, an important form of art in many cultures, extends beyond the borders of countries and regions, and is an excellent method of communication. For years, the theme songs about giant pandas have played an important role in the music industry. However, since the songs Panda Mimi and Super Cute Pandas are Coming were debuted in 1984 and 2006, respectively, there have been no recent popular songs about pandas.
