ART for the World
ART for The World is a Platform for Art, Culture, and Ecosystem, inspired by Article 27 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: "Everyone has the right freely to participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits". In Season 1 one can see how Human activities have a direct impact on the resources of our planet, as well as on animals and nature with whom we share the Earth. It is indeed clearly evidenced that human influences are the primary cause of global warming. This warming is altering the earth’s climate system, including its land, atmosphere, oceans, and ice, in far-reaching ways. Higher temperatures are worsening in many types of disasters, including storms, heat waves, floods, droughts, and pollution.
