Open call for visual artists to contribute to book aimed at tackling the climate emergency

Art & Culture

In response to COP26, purpose-driven brand agency Given have put out a call for visual artists to be part of a unique project aimed at tackling the climate emergency.

“The Uncook Book: How to Unbake the Planet” will compile artwork from selected artists that helps to decode and communicate science’s complex solutions to the climate emergency, aiming to make them more accessible to a wider audience.

The brief asks artists, through any medium of their choice, to represent three key concepts in a simple and inspirational way: unbake how we consume, unbake how we live and unbake what we value.


Becks Williams, Creative Director at Given said; “The Uncook Book” is an exciting opportunity for any artist passionate about the planet and art’s power to communicate and inspire. When it comes to the climate emergency, many of us are experiencing fatigue, thanks to the weight of what needs to be done and its daily presence on the news agenda. This COP26 we wanted to launch a project that would help tackle any sense of hopelessness around the issue by raising awareness of the scientifically-backed solutions which will start to make a real impact.”

Help Uncook the Planet

Profits from the sales of the book will be donated to a climate-positive charity. Submissions can be made on their website before the deadline on January 31st 2022.
