The 17 Global Goals focus on 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years:
End extreme poverty.
Fight inequality & injustice.
Fix climate change.
But who really knows about their existence? And if we don’t all know about them, how are we ever going to hold our politicians to account? The only way to ensure they keep to their promises, is to build awareness and ensure they all realise the world is watching.
So that’s where we come in. We’ve taken the 17 Goals, reached out to a network of incredible artists and illustrators and asked them to interpret each goal with an artwork.
Here’s a list of all the goals, with the name of the artists we’re working with beside them (we’ll also be sharing the final artworks here as they come in):
1 — No Poverty
2 — Zero Hunger
3 — Good Health and Well-being
4 — Quality Education
5 — Gender Equality
6 — Clean Water and Sanitation
Gust of Wind Studio
7 — Affordable and Clean Energy
Just be Nice
8 — Decent work and Economic Growth
9 — Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
10 — Reduced Inequalities
11 — Sustainable Cities and Communities
12 — Responsible Consumption and Production
13 — Climate Action
14 — Life Below Water
15 — Life on Land
Peace and Justice, Strong Institutions
17 — Partnerships for the Goals
The 1st time we’ll showcase these images will be at our House of Vans event in London on the 17th December 2015 (see what we did there). But realistically that’s unlikely to get them in front of the 7 billion people on the planet ;-(
Thanks to our partnership with Viber (and their 660 million users), we’re also going to be pushing this out to the world and asking people to tell us what they think? Even with them on board and some of the amazing partners who are already involved in the campaign, we’re going to be way short.
So we’re asking for your help. Would you like to get involved? Do something small or big? Whatever we can do to promote the goals and or the artworks helps achieve the ultimate BHAG (Big Hairy Ass Goal)!
