RCE Youth Art Challenge Exhibition

Monday, May 15, 2023 to Saturday, July 15, 2023

In 2022, the second RCE Youth Art Challenge was held by the Global RCE Service Centre, United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS), in partnership with UNESCO, on the theme of biodiversity.

The Challenge put a spotlight on the species, habitats, and ecosystems that we all need to work to protect. Artworks were received from youth across the world, focusing on SDG 14 (life below water) or SDG 15 (life on land), and described the actions we can all take to conserve biodiversity.  

From 15 May until 15 July 2023, an exhibition is being held at the Global Environment Outreach Centre at the United Nations University in Tokyo, Japan, showcasing a number of the awarded artworks from the 2022 RCE Youth Biodiversity Art Challenge.

Entries consisted of drawings, paintings, craft work, digital art, and photographs across two categories: 'Animals & Plants' and 'Habitats & Ecosystems' (take a look at the artworks in this video featuring the awardees).

The exhibition is open to all and is free to attend; no registration is required.

Date/Time: 15 May - 15 July 2023
Location: Global Environment Outreach Centre, United Nations University (Tokyo, Japan)
