Art is a window to learning, and a global touchstone common to all. It allows both expression by the artist, and interpretation by the viewer. The United Nations actively promotes art that reflects common values such as development, peace, and sustainability. The Global Citizenship Education Network sees international art as a critical window through which learners can learn about, and become, global citizens. GCEN sponsors initiatives by contemporary artists, and art students, that lead to global learning and personal growth. Through the window of art, global citizens are made.
