UNESCO Green Citizens exhibition at the European Parliament

The UNESCO Green Citizens: Pathfinders for Change exhibition presents ten remarkable projects featuring men and women making a real contribution to education for sustainable development. It will be presented at the European Parliament in Brussels until 18 May.

This edition, inaugurated in 14 May, is organized in partnership with Klorane Botanical Foundation and SIPA PRESS, under the patronage of Ms Elizabeth Morin-Chartier, MEP and Quaestor at the European Parliament, and with the support of the Mohammed VI Foundation for Environmental Protection.

The UNESCO Green Citizens initiative has been launched in October 2015 on the occasion of the COP21 to shift the spotlight on men and women around the world - Pathfinders for change - who have launched remarkable projects in education or awareness for sustainable development to build a better future.

Everyone can become a citizen of the planet

The exhibition, through portraits and documentaries, pays tribute to people who give life to educational projects for sustainable development worldwide and help us move towards fairer and more inclusive green societies. In highlighting 30 amazing pathfinders for change for sustainable development who share their stories, it shows that everyone can become a citizen of the planet.

The exhibition debuted at UNESCO Headquarters, Paris, in October 2015 and was subsequently seen on board the COP21 Climate Train, at the United Nations Headquarters in New York from February to April 2016, at the United Nations Office at Geneva from June to September 2016, at COP22 on November 2016 and on Moroccan airports from November 2016 to April 2018.
