Art For Your World is a new campaign for WWF, led by curatorial practice Artwise, to mobilise and unite the art world in the fight against the climate crisis.The campaign #ArtForYourWorld will run on Instagram from September through to November to align with COP26 (26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties taking place 1–12 November in Glasgow) - the defining moment for our future and the health of our planet.
From practising artists to commercial galleries, cultural centres to museums and beyond, this is a wide call to action for the cultural sector to come together with a united voice to say that climate change matters and we must act now.
The funds raised by Art For Your World will be used to support key areas of WWF’s work that contribute to combatting dangerous climate change, such as: halting deforestation; supporting communities; restoring trees and forests; replanting seagrass meadows; protecting endangered species; and promoting sustainable lifestyles

From September to November this year, in the lead up to COP26, we’re encouraging artists, collectors, galleries, institutions and art lovers to support WWF in their mission to tackle climate change through a series of initiatives. These include a charitable auction at Sotheby’s, the sale of exclusive new prints by three leading contemporary artists and a range of digital activations and partnerships. Funds raised through the campaign will strengthen critical areas of WWF’s work that contribute to battling the climate crisis, such as:
Restoring trees and forests
Replanting seagrass meadows
Protecting endangered species
Promoting sustainable lifestyles
