To engage the hearts and minds of wider community, we are producing environmental art and organizing exhibitions. The funding we receive through selling environmental art will support our much needed research in ecological economics and sustainable development. This is our creative business model and a fundraising scheme.
One of our most recent projects entitled 'Ecosystems: Complexity, Diversity and Nature's Contribution to Humanity has resulted in a colourful album with the same title and an exhibition held at Oxford University. Our director, Dr Stanislav Edward Shmelev presented the recently published 'ECOSYSTEMS' album at the United Nations World Urban Forum 2020 in Abu Dhabi and the 50th Anniversary Conference of the Club of Rome. The album has received letters of support from HH Pope Francis, HRH Prince Charles, President Macron, Prime Minister Rutte, Government of India and Sir David Attenborough as well as Nobel Prize winning climate change economists, former presidents of the International Society for Ecological Economics, IUCN, DG Environment at the European Commission, co-president of the Club of Rome, professors from Colombia, Sri Lanka, Spain, UK, Brazil, USA. The book has been presented at the UNFCCC COP24 Conference on Climate Change.
The art of our founder, Dr Stanislav Edward Shmelev has been selected among the world's 120 very best in 2021 at Arte Laguna Prize and further selection of only 18 was made in 2022 at the Land of Venice Exhibition. We were invited to organise a large solo exhibition at Arsenale di Venezia in 2023. Any banks, foundations, corporations and private philanthropists willing to support our work could donate or order the artworks from the exhibition to support the show.
