The UN celebrates and raises awareness for a green recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. A sustainable green recovery plan from the pandemic, necessitates understanding the links between climate change, health, and inequality; and implementing ambitious climate change policies, which align with the Paris agreement. The United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) are a call for action by all countries to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. More important than ever, these goals provide a critical framework for a COVID-19 green recovery. The 12 art shows curated by Selva Ozelli, exhibited at the Seventh session of the Africa Regional Forum on Sustainable Development conference, and COP26 reflect these themes. These art shows by artists Serife Akkan, Semine Hazar, Fatma Kadir, Mehmet Kuran, Selva Ozelli and Ilhan Sayin contain paintings that were acknowledged in numerous United Nations art competitions.
