A collection of artworks created by children and young people from Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Costa Rica, Italy, and New Zealand on key environmental issues highlighted in the Innocenti Report Card 17 'Places and Spaces: Environments and children's well-being'.

In each country participating in this project, small groups of children and adolescents discussed how global environmental challenges affect their daily lives.

Based on their discussions, children engaged in creative activities: they made videos, drew or wrote stories, took photos, and wrote or recorded audio captions for their artwork.
