Live Event: Nurses at the forefront of change


WISH & EARTHNA Plastics Art Competition

The World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH) is taking place this year from 4-6 October 2022 and will be focusing on the topic of global health and sustainability under the title “Healing the Future”.

WISH and Earthna are collaborating on an art competition with plastics to be presented at WISH 2022, . The purpose of  competition is to highlight and raise awareness on the role of plastics in the historical and dichotomous development and deterioration of health worldwide. The artistic creations should be engaging, impactful and relevant to WISH 2022.

Art and culture will always be integral parts of sustainable development. They capture the attention of people and solidify the reality and realization that climate change and health are connected to us all and that we are part of the solution. We hope that this competition will be able to touch the hearts and minds of the community and be a resounding success.
