EMERALD, BLUE, SILVER, AND GOLD is an interdisciplinary pilot project. With this project, we are exploring the possibilities of cooperation and the art engagement within the nature preservation and its wise use: we encourage mobility of the artists, scientists, archaeologists, historians, youth, involved institutions and all interested parties who contribute in the raising an awareness of the inseparability of the nature and culture, the cultural and the natural heritage.

Thus, in 2018, POWERPROGRESSIVEART organized an International Interdisciplinary Meeting (Healthy living – long-term commitment) and an exhibition (NATURA: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE) in cooperation with Sabah Wetlands Conservation Society who manages Ramsar site, the urban wetland at Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia, aligned with the theme for COP13.

During the 13th Meeting of the Conference of the Contracting Parties to the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands (COP13) that was held at the United Arab Emirates, from 21 to 29 October 2018, the Contracting Parties were convening to assess progress in the implementation of the Convention and the wise use of wetlands, and plan their own work and that of the Secretariat for the next triennium[1]. The theme for COP13 was “Wetlands for a Sustainable Urban Future”. The WetlandLIFE presented a three-year interdisciplinary project funded by UK Research Councils through the Valuing Nature Programme. The idea and a side event: Sense of Place & Wellbeing in Wetlands: using film & the arts to achieve SDG3 Practical ways in which arts, humanities and social sciences can be used to achieve SDG3 in urban wetlands is a guideline for the project EMERALD, BLUE, SILVER, AND GOLD.

The Ramsar Culture Network (RCN) is forming a programme[2] aligned with the Ramsar 50th Anniversary in 2021. According to the RCN adopted indicative programme[3] for the triennium and to honor the celebration we wish to contribute (and possibly develop that contribution) by making a documentary of Mljet island (emerald, blue, silver and gold sea), it’s wetlands, natural and cultural beauties. 

 

Within this project were conducted: short film recordings (documentary film),  webcast organized by the artist Aviva Rahmani, film screenings and the international conference in a form of talks.
