What does global citizenship mean to you?
The Ban Ki-moon Centre encourages artists, designers, activists, students and change-makers to design a poster on global citizenship. We ask for you to use your creativity as a communication tool and inspire others to take action.
During the pandemic, we observed a rise in nationalism, xenophobia and global inequalities. We believe that promoting global citizenship will foster a new generation of leaders who cultivate empathy, sustainability, and human rights. Target 4.7 of the SDGs, education for global citizenship, may be the glue that holds all of it together.
Art has the power to visualize thoughts and emotions and is a catalyst for protest and activism. A poster competition should create ideas on global citizenship, a term coined by many nouns and adjectives but lacking visualization.
Creating a Common Identity: What does Global Citizenship mean to you?
How can a global citizen be portrayed? What does her or his environment look like? Which tools are being used in a global citizen’s daily life? What values, ideas, fears, and stories are inhabited? How can global citizenship contribute to the local community and transform society?
People from all sectors and countries around the world skilled in design, graphics and visual art. Participants should be older than 16 years. Individual and group submissions are accepted.
15 July 2020 – 15 October 2020
