C40 Cities: The Future We Want (2019)

  • Ngadi Smart

"Illustrating The Future We Want" is a project organized by C40 Cities, showcasing the work of artists from around the world.What does your greener future look like?  C40 Cities commissioned me and 21 other artists to be part of a project seeking to show what a greener tomorrow could look like, if we took bold action to address the climate crisis now. We each illustrated how bold climate action can build a healthier, more sustainable, & equitable future, with this basic prompt: "What does the future you want look like?". My future is of a female populated environment, where tree houses are the norm, and futuristic flower and plant helmets provide air and nutrients to a patriarchy-free environment.
