Call for Artwork to help the IPCC make science accessible – #SayItWithScience

The UN Foundation and the IPCC are partnering to make climate science more accessible to global youth. The initiative, called #SayItWithScience, uses art to rapidly communicate climate solutions to new audiences. To make IPCC science more accessible, UNF is calling on young artists to help visualize climate solutions and energize the call to “unite behind the science.” As part of the Say It With Science initiative, this artwork would be credited in public communications and could potentially feature in upcoming report releases by the IPCC on the latest science of climate change. Get in touch with Sigourney Luz if you have any questions: s.luz@ipcc-wg3.ac.uk.

Join or establish a National Ocean Decade Committee

Voluntary National Decade Committees are now being established to support implementation of Ocean Decade initiatives at the national level – which include a strong training, capacity-development, and mutual assistance component – as well as support the coordination of Decade Actions within countries. National Decade Committees will help connect stakeholders looking to collaborate or share examples of successful co-design and co-delivery of activities to inspire action in others. Find out more here or contact oceandecade@unesco.org.
