The Grantham Climate Art Prize: An art competition for young people to install a message of hope for the future

We wanted to paint powerful public art across the UK to raise awareness for biodiversity loss and climate change, working with the Grantham Institute - Climate Change and the Environment at Imperial College London, the Natural History Museum’s Real World Science network and UK Youth for Nature. Amazingly, over 100 original and inventive designs flooded our way from young people aged 12-25, representing climate change through art.

We want to showcase their artwork far and wide, starting with this online gallery.
