New Virtual Magazine: The Art of Climate Action

Effective strategies to learn about and engage with climate change play an important role in addressing this challenge. There is growing recognition that education needs to change in order to address climate change, yet the question remains: “How?” How does one engage young people with a topic that is often perceived as abstract, distant, and complex? 

The United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI) has created a new virtual magazine to promote this dialogue, which features a wide range of artwork by professional and amateur artists, including paintings, illustrations, street art, poetry, and films.

October 2021: SDGs 1 and 2

Globally, the number of people living in extreme poverty declined from 36 per cent in 1990 to 10 per cent in 2015. But more than 700 million people, or 10 per cent of the world population, still live in extreme poverty today, struggling to fulfil the most basic needs.

Poverty is also a key cause of hunger. The world is not on track to achieve Zero Hunger by 2030. If recent trends continue, the number of people affected by hunger would surpass 840 million by 2030.

This month we focus on SDG 1: No Poverty and SDG 2: Zero Hunger.
