World Children's Day Kids Take Over
Children take over to reimagine a safe and sustainable future.
Children from across India have illustrated the world they want, sharing their ideas to reimagine a more sustainable future. They have taken over UNICEF India's digital channels for national Children's Day and World Children's Day.
Thank you to all the children from the 9isMine network who contributed.
My goal for this painting was to experiment with textures from color pens and water. It is so exciting to imagine outer space specially earth from space. This painting describes a story (the day the sun went on strike), and this painting has been cover page for the story. It shows the connectivity between the celestial bodies and relationship between the sun and the Earth. The Earth is harmed by people and the sun stops giving resources to people in revenge. In the end Earth became the eye of our solar system without which its beauty cannot be seen.
As we all know, during the COVID-19 lockdown pollution was reduced. Now because of unlock 1,2,3 and 4 people have again started using vehicles and pollution is increasing again. This drawing shows pollution surrounding the Earth. We all have to reduce it.
This drawing describes inclusive and resilient cities, which is the immediate need for the future. The cities are using renewable energy sources that are infused with modern technology for a sustainable future to achieve SDG 7, that is affordable and clean energy.
My name is Etisha Verma. I'm 13 years old. I am a student of Tagore International School, East of Kailash. I live in New Delhi. My artwork depicts the phase where The Sun has gone on strike because of human activities causing harm to the environment. But now people have realised their mistake and are regretful for their deed, and they apologize to the Sun. Sun on strike, "we apologize!"
The art depicts how the evil factory digs natural resources, gives out smoke and fools people by earning a lot of money.
My art is about the sun talking to all the planets.
