SAM partners with UNEP and FAO on 50 spectacular murals in major cities around the world and 5 huge landmark initiatives to raise awareness and trigger action on ecosystem restoration and climate change reversal by 2030.
In 2021, the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and the the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) are launching the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. This massive 10-years campaign of #RestorationMurals will amplify this #GenerationRestoration movement.
The first “Ecosystem Restoration” mural was created by Street Artist Lula Goce in July 2021 in Brussels (Avenue Louise, 375). It features a “mother nature”, an alchemist, keeping biodiversity in her hands, while warning us to take care of our environment. The mural was made possible thanks to the generous support of Solvay and the help of City of Brussels (Parcours Street Art).
SAM’s free App “Behind the Wall®” enables the public to scan the mural – or a picture of it – to hear the stories and engage with the art even from home.
To hear the artist speak about his creative process or simply read the story behind each mural above.
The app also helps you locate the murals closest to you and make creative selfies to share with us and the artist.
