Bodies of Change - Body of Work

The Bodies of Change project brought together artists, models, and photographers from across the country.

These change agents created works of bodypaint that represent pressing environmental issues and sustainable development goals.

With these pieces, People, Planet, Paint and its collaborators hope that viewers will pay extra attention to the truth and gravity behind climate change and be moved to act in ways that will mitigate it and its effects. Action against climate change and for sustainable development benefits both the planet and the people it serves, now and into the future.

Welcome, we hope you enjoy your look at the #NakedTruth of climate change.

United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, countries adopted a set of global goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all now and into the future. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are supposed to guide nations and their actions for the next 15 years and EVERYONE must play a part in order for the goals to be reached. Did you know about these goals? Are you doing your part?
