• BOSF Stop Litter in Parks – Poster Competition!

    “There has been over a seven-fold increase in litter in parks between this year and last.” – Birmingham City Council

    We are encouraging young people to help set a good example and to design eye-catching and inspiring posters to send out a clear message: Don’t litter – if the bins in the park are full, please take it home! 

    Are you fed up with seeing our beautiful parks and green spaces being disrespected by thoughtless litterers? So are we!  

    It’s time to get creative and help to inspire with art, to stop litter in parks! 

    The top poster designs will be printed and displayed across a selection of Birmingham’s parks notice boards and shared online across BOSF and partners social media channels!  

    Parks are vital to the health and well-being of so many people across our city! Through this activity we are aiming to promote a positive message and encourage people use parks responsibly and help to look after the environment. 

    How to get involved?

    We are open to seeing a range of designs, the more eye catching the better! Designs should be bold and text with key messages clearly visible.
