The Solar Mural artworks are an example for sustainable ways combined with a new kind of art in public spaces. While reducing the carbon footprint as part of the solution to climate change, they also create a vibrant street art based on the local culture. There are already various installations from murals which are fabricated from photovoltaic panels. The Project also supports communities in education, design and installation of solar technology.
