In celebration of Earth Day yesterday, Agora announced a new Global Art Award in support of the UN climate campaigns. Agora is one of the world’s leading and widest-reach platforms for digital art. The campaign runs from April 22nd (yesterday) to July 22nd.
About the art prize
From Earth Day (April 22) to July 22, people around the world are invited to present and share their individual actions to fight climate change and protect the planet by sending a photo or video with the hashtag # Add MyClimateAction. The top 50 photos or videos will be displayed at the COP27 held in Egypt and also at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. All submissions should be made on the Agora Awards website.
The aim of the campaign is to inspire other people. These individuals include institutions, leaders, and future generations who wish to join the movement. They would do this by following some of the models that are shared in the photos or videos or by finding new ways to save our planet. They also aim to show leaders how ordinary people are making a difference in the fight against climate change.
said Octavi Royo, CEO and Founder of Agora. “In an indirect but very powerful way, we the people are telling our leaders and governments how together they can create a better world.”
