What is the DigitalArt4Climate initiative?

The United Nations announced 2021 as the Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development to recognise the value of creativity as a powerful resource for sustainable development and climate action. DigitalArt4Climate in partnership with UN-Habitat is an initiative to accelerate that force.
The DigitalArt4Climate is an unprecedented multi-stakeholder partnership initiative which uses blockchain technology to turn art into digital assets, also known as NFTs, which can be collected and traded, thus opening up a socio-technological innovation space which helps to unlock extraordinary potential for resource mobilization in support of Sustainable Development Goals and UN Agenda 2030 implementation in general and action for climate empowerment in particular.

DigitalArt4Climate is focused on inspiring creativity and positive social impact and provides the next-gen Web3 tools to empower the community to create, collaborate, and connect with one another in the digital space.
