Arts for Climate Change- The Trees From Art Project.

Over the years, ART has been used for social change. It involves using masterpieces that have a clear vision and showcases a deliberate analysis of a subject matter, such as culture, the environment, politics, beauty, amongst other vital subjects.


Through our Vision of the Child Platform, our organisation has been a significant player in this space for over ten years, consciously infusing Art into our advocacy for Politics, Corruption, Rule of Law, Girl Child Education, and Climate change.


Since 2020, we have focused our attention on Climate Change through Solution17 for Climate Action and Naija Climate Now. Our goal is to work with a generation of innovators on ideas that address the climate emergency and explore climate change through Art to bring about behavioural change.


The global climate crisis is arguably the most significant challenge for the 21st century. It is an issue that scientists from all over the world have been researching, discussing and urging us to mitigate. Many people have been displaced worldwide, and homes and businesses are damaged and destroyed due to the catastrophic effects of climate change. The impacts of flooding, heatwaves and changing weather patterns are pronounced, and unless we act swiftly, the losses to our global community will be unimaginable and irreplaceable.


We are confident that Art can communicate differently than science the threat climate change poses to our planet. Art and humanities can play a critical role in engaging young people and adults with new perspectives on Climate Change.


We are currently creating champions through creativity and education to create awareness of climate change and its solutions. We see Art as a force that plays a significant role in the global climate change campaign, and we are exploring creative ways to infuse Art into climate change.


In October 2021, The Naija Climate Now Art Exhibition was held at the British Deputy High Commission, hosted by the British High Deputy Commissioner  Ben Llewellyn-Jones. The exhibition showcased how our climate artists and advocates depicted climate solutions and the goals of COP26 to create masterpieces for transformational change.


The event followed the Art for Climate Change launched by Solution17 for Climate Action in 2020. The Climate Change Art Exhibition was launched by the United Nations Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed, founded and launched Art for Climate Change in 2020.


The exhibition featured 17 canvases showing climate adaptation and resilience, green economic recovery, and a low-carbon Nigeria. It also showed the 34 climate solutions by Naija Climate Now finalists and the COP26 goals of limiting global temperatures to 1.5 degrees Celsius, climate adaptation, climate finance, and partnerships to achieve the goals.


On Monday, November 1, 2021, the Italian Consulate and Sterling Bank Plc collaborated with Solution17 for Climate Action, United Nations Information Centre for Nigeria and other stakeholders to host the Art for Climate Change Exhibition and the

Opening of the first Virtual Climate Gallery. 


Here comes the game-changer


This year, we are roll out the plan to create a minimum of 25000 student entrepreneurs in 500 schools in Lagos state through the Naija Climate Now-Trees from Art Initiative.


We are on a journey to raise student Entrepreneurs in secondary schools who would bring value to the schools and Nigeria economy through sustainable

tree planting, climate-smart agriculture, environmental education, entrepreneurship development and skill acquisition.


The project will onboard the participants and their respective agriculture teachers to the

green entrepreneurs' community platform for monitoring and evaluation.


The project process will continue with the launch of Solution17 Non–fungible Token (NFTs), an inclusive Trees From Art Summit and a documentary movie that will be screened in September 2022.
