The German Embassy in Port of Spain received a “Buddy Bear”, a 2 m tall statue of glass-fibre reinforced plastic in plain white. It has been provided to the Embassy to promote what the “Buddy Bear” stands for in Germany: a symbol of tolerance and understanding of people, cultures and religions

The Embassy invited professionals in the arts and design community to participate at the design competition to decorate the bear as well as Secondary Schools from all over Trinidad.
