Street Art for Mankind (SAM) collaborated with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to amplify the messages of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration , a global effort to reverse climate change and biodiversity loss by 2030, by creating a series of #EcosystemRestorationMurals around the world.
This initiative kicked off in Brussels, with a large 40 meter high “Ecosytem Restoration” mural by artist Lula Goce .
The second mural took place in Houston, where artist Martin Ron painted a 16-story high mural, highlighting growing trees as a way to restore local ecosystems and their functions for people and nature.
As world leaders united in New York for Climate Week and the UN General Assembly, SAM created an immense, colorful 3D Ecosystem Restoration mural with artist Carlos Alberto, on the Javits Center during the Nest Climate Campus.
The latest mural created by artist duo Nomad Clan, just appeared in Detroit. This cry to awaken civic advocacy in order to restore ecosystems and tree equity, is also part of a larger Detroit Be The Change open-air museum.
Learn more about this Restoration Mural with a conversation with Founder of SAM, Audrey Decker.
