Ethics & Aesthetics: Art education as a sustainable developmental catalyser

Nordic Journal of Art and Research invites researchers, educators and actionists to hand in abstracts that describe how art education can contribute to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The aim is to publish one research article for every SDG, where each article, in English or a Nordic language, focuses mainly on one of the goals. Publication: 2022-2023.

Nordic Journal of Art and Research is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal aimed at disseminating knowledge and experience from research and development projects based on artistic practice and reflection, art education, art theory and cultural theory: https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/information/

In the midst of Covid-19, it is an historic and ethical opportunity to look at the fact of the world as it is, and the focus on the solution for some of our greatest problems through the lenses of art education. Together we can overcome them by focusing on the ways in which art (and aesthetic in all its forms) can be applied to address global wellbeing issues: https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/

Background:

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
