Elyx is a virtual character who looks at the world with interest and good humour. Drawn in a very simple style, Elyx can express a great number of different expressions.
Created three years ago by the French artist YAK, Elyx is published every day on social media and has over 45,000 followers. Elyx does not speak, has no nationality, race or sex, and is therefore a universal character, comprehensible by all everywhere.
In partnership with the artist, UNRIC is using Elyx to highlight a series of international observances as well as the UN's 2014 Climate Summit.
The Brussels based United Nations Regional Information Centre for Western Europe - UNRIC provides information on UN activities to the countries of the region. It also provides liaison with institutions of the European Union in the field of information. Its outreach activities extend to all segments of society and joint campaigns, projects and events are organized with partners including the EU, governments, the media, NGOs, schools and local authorities.
