Peace Boat US has curated an interactive art exhibition featuring images from the UN Ocean Decade program including AR (Augmented Reality) to raise awareness for ocean and climate action.  Attendees will be able to download the ‘Artivive’ app for free and see the images in the AR gallery come to life, bringing special messages for climate action and preservation of our ocean.  

The Making Waves exhibit will showcase Peace Boat’s collaborations across the United States working with local governments, academia, civil society and youth groups to develop capacity building for youth.  Peace Boat’s collaborations focus on the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, a major global initiative to deepen scientific knowledge of the sea and revitalize our oceans.  Its mission is to generate the knowledge we need to achieve a world where biodiversity flourishes and the ocean plays a central role in the drive for sustainable, fair development of our planet as we tackle the realities of climate change.  The exhibit will draw on Peace Boat activities over the past year and announce new initiatives including Peace Boat U.S.’ “Youth for the SDGs” scholarship program.  The scholarship will help hundreds of youth sail the world onboard Peace Boat’s ship, the MV Pacific World, which has the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) logo on the hull, bringing the message of the SDGs to more than 100 countries per year. 

About Peace Boat:  Peace Boat is a non-profit organization that seeks to develop programs that teach participants about issues such as environmental degradation, gender violence, and more.  

This exhibit is located in the U.S. Center green room and will be accessible to general COP28 attendees from 12:00 – 1:30 daily.
