SUBMISSIONS OPEN: RCE YOUTH CLIMATE ART CHALLENGE

The Global RCE Service Centre at the United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS) is now accepting submissions for its first RCE Youth Climate Art Challenge! 

We're looking for your creative works of art that capture the essence of engaging 'hearts, hands, or heads' - a notion that Scottish 19th century polymath and educational visionary Sir Patrick Geddes (1854 -1932) spoke about regarding the development of the concept of 'sustainability', spanning environment, society and community. These sub-themes will feature widely throughout the 12th Global RCE Conference, to be held online from 16-18 November, 2021. Entries close 30 September, 2021. Find out more here.
