Young people have a key role to play in driving action to achieve net-zero cities and design healthy, sustainable cities of the future in Zimbabwe. The Art of Health Competition in collaboration with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine Centre on Climate Change and Planetary Health  and the Children, Cities and Climate project  called on  talented young Zimbabweans to submit design or music entries under the theme: “The air we breathe in Zimbabwe’s cities”. The competition served as a platform for them to express how they felt about the city they live in, the air they breathe, and the potential benefits that improving air quality could have on the health and well-being of young Zimbabweans. 


Winning entries were presented to global audiences at the Conference of Youth (COY16) which took place in Glasgow, Scotland in October 2021. COY16 took place just before  COP26, the UN Climate Change conference in November 2021, and brought together thousands of young changemakers from more than 140 countries to discuss pressing climate issues.
