Sustainable Art Program

Welcome to the Seplaa Young Leaders Club International (SYLCI) Sustainable Art Program!

Our Mission: Inspiring Creativity with Purpose

In the SYLC Sustainable Art Program, we believe in the incredible power of art to drive change, inspire creativity, and promote sustainability including climate change resilience to support the UN SDG 13.

Here’s a glimpse into what we do:

🌿 Fusing Art and Sustainability: We bridge the worlds of art and sustainability, encouraging young artists to use their talents for a higher purpose. Through our program, participants explore innovative ways to express environmental and social concerns.

🖌️ Art as Advocacy: Art has the unique ability to communicate complex ideas and emotions. We empower our young artists to become advocates for sustainability, using their creative skills to raise awareness and inspire action on pressing global issues.

🎨 Unleashing Creative Potential: We nurture creativity in all its forms. Whether you’re a painter, sculptor, poet, photographer, or any type of artist, our program is a platform for you to explore, experiment, and express your vision for a better, more sustainable world.

🌟 Exhibition and Outreach: SYLCI provides opportunities for artists to showcase their work, connecting them with a wider audience. We believe that by sharing their art, our members can spark conversations and change perspectives on sustainability.

🤝 Community of Like-Minded Artists: Joining SYLCI means becoming part of a vibrant community of young artists who share your passion for sustainability. Collaborate, learn, and grow together as you embark on this inspiring journey.
