The Arts, our Cultures, and Sustainability – The 2nd #Arts2030 Dialogue Celebrates World Environment Day 2022

Every year on June 5, the world celebrates World Environment Day to encourage awareness and action for the protection of the environment. The 2022 World Environment Day campaign #OnlyOneEarth calls for collective, transformative action on a global scale to celebrate, protect and restore our planet.

Honouring this year’s World Environment Day and following the success of the Earth Day event in April 2022, York’s UNESCO Chair in partnership with Toronto-based painter and poet Gail Williams will hold the 2nd #Arts2030 Dialogue on Sunday, June 5 at 11 a.m.

They will address the unique role of the arts and culture in humanity’s hope for a sustainable future and on how the arts and culture model sustainability in their practice. Charles Hopkins and Gail Williams will explore the place of culture and the arts for the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the current development paradigm towards 2030.
