Art Exhibit ‘Melting Ice/A Hot Topic: Envisioning Change’ will travel to UNEP Meeting in Monaco

Achim_steiner_4The Natural World Museum (NWM) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) have revealed plans to bring their innovative and highly celebrated art exhibit, “Melting Ice/A Hot Topic: Envisioning Change,” to the Principality of Monaco in for the Tenth Special Session of UNEP's Governing Council/Global Ministerial Environment Forum on Globalization and Environment: Financing the Climate Challenge.

 

Revealing the plans, Achim Steiner, Under Secretary-General of the United Nations and Executive Director of UNEP, said “science informs the mind, music and the heart but art connects with the human spirit. We urgently need to empower all three of these essential human elements if we are to rise to the challenge and seize the opportunities for economic, environmental and social renewal glimpsed through the lens of climate change.” The international exhibit on climate change will be hosted by the Office of Cultural Affairs in Monaco (DAC) from 20 February to 16 March 2008.
