The European Green Deal, a new growth strategy for Europe which has its sights on making Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, is the first major policy adopted by the European Commission under its new President Ursula von der Leyen. In its ambitious policy paper, the Commission sets out to tackle some of the most important environmental and climate-related problems facing humanity and provides a long term vision for industries and business so that they can make significant investments in modernising and reducing their environmental impacts.
‘Icons of Nature’ - Sirpa Pajunen-Moghissi’s current series of work - draws on the traditions of icon painting.

And here, nature is the subject of worship, not human gods or saints.
