British Deputy High Commission  To Host “Naija Climate Now” Art Exhibition.

The intersection between arts, culture and the environment in Nigeria is undeniable, from our agricultural systems to the industries that dominate our societies. It is therefore important to explore climate change through art as a means of bringing about behavioural change and fully addressing the climate emergency.

In the lead-up to the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) scheduled to hold in Glasgow on 1-12 November 2021, the British Deputy High Commission in collaboration with the Creative Youth Community Development Initiative - Solution17 for Climate Action and the United Nations Information Centre for Nigeria will host the Naija Climate Now Exhibition.

Slated for the 7th of October 2021, the NAIJA CLIMATE NOW on 17 CANVASSES Exhibition will showcase sustainable art that aim to provoke innovative responses on enhancing climate resilience, green economic recovery, and low-carbon development for Nigeria. It will also bring together key stakeholders including civil society organisations, businesses, and people on the frontline of climate change to galvanise action ahead of COP26.

Naija Climate Now presents an opportunity for all stakeholders within the environmental space, including government, non-governmental, private sectors, education and research institutions and international entities, to reflect on Nigeria’s issues and proposed solutions towards climate adaptation on the Race to Zero.

On Tuesday, the 21st of September, the United Nations Information Centre will host a press conference to officially announce the partnership with the British Deputy High Commission and present the Naija Climate Now Finalists and Artists to the world.
