To put it simply, the state of the planet is broken. Making peace with nature is the defining task of the 21st century. It must be the top, top priority for everyone, everywhere. - António Guterres, UN Secretary-General
Nature is currently declining at rates unseen in human history, with up to one million species threatened by extinction. Everything on our planet is interconnected - and we are part of the equation. If we are to avert a climate and biodiversity disaster, we must come together to fundamentally reset our relationship with nature.
In 2021, ART 2030 invites the art sector, the SDG sector and beyond, to raise global public awareness of the challenges to the well-being of the planet and all the life it supports. First launched and initated by ART 2030 in 2020, the Art for a Healthy Planet digital campaign continues to call for urgent action to secure a sustainable future for people and the planet, through the power of art.
On Earth Day and World Environment Day 2021, relay the message by sharing great artworks that speak to the need for a healthy planet on Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook .
