Igniting Sustainability through Art: RCE Youth Art Challenge Exhibition at ESD-Net 2030 Global Meeting

The Global RCE Service Centre at the United Nations University Institute of the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS) has organised the RCE Youth Art Challenge annually since 2021.

Through the powerful medium of art, this initiative invites young talents from around the world to share their unique perspectives and ideas on sustainability issues.

We hope that the creativity and passion of these young artists will kindle your imagination and inspire actions to move forward towards sustainable societies.
