WWF joins forces with Artwise Curators to launch Art For Your World and combat the climate crisis.

The art world has the power to influence, galvanise and make a real difference. Through Art For Your World we want to harness this power and bring together the creativity and generosity of the cultural sector to stand in solidarity and help take hold of the future of our planet.

Art For Your World is a series of actions taking place this autumn in the context of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) taking place 1-12 November in Glasgow. A wide call to artists, collectors, galleries, museums and arts organisations to make a meaningful connection between art and the environment, in order to support the ground-breaking work being carried out by WWF, one of the world’s largest conservation organisations. The activities include a charitable auction at Sotheby’s of several outstanding works of art, the sale of exclusive new prints by three leading contemporary artists and arts organisations all over the world speaking out for action against climate change.

The funds raised by Art For Your World will be used to support key areas of WWF’s work that contribute to combatting dangerous climate change, such as:

  • halting deforestation
  • supporting communities
  • conserving and restoring trees and forests
  • replanting seagrass meadows
  • protecting endangered species
  • promoting sustainable lifestyles.

If you are an artist or arts organisation and want to align with the campaign, please visit the project website www.artforyourworld.com.

Art For Your world is an Artwise Curators initiative.
