Do you know the Sustainable Development Goals?
Last 21st September turned to be the first anniversary for the proclamation of the Agenda 2030 for the Sustainable Development. This agreement, adopted by all the countries that form part of the UN, is focused on 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with the aim of addressing the most serious problems on the planet from a universal approach that comprises of all the key actors (governments, organizations, civil society…). According to the information from the United Nations, as of today the Agenda 2030 is already implemented in more than 50 countries.
Throughout this first year, we have also played our part in the disclosure of the SDGs in Smilemundo, in cooperation with the International Network of Cities and Local and Regional Governments (UCLG), an entity that supports the international cooperation between the cities and its associations. Precisely we have developed a string of animations about the following four developmental goals:
SDG5 – Gender Equality
SDG8– Decent work and economic growth
SDG11– Sustainable cities and communities
SDG16– Peace, justice and solid institutions
With the videos, we are trying to explain each SDG in a visual and more enjoyable way and show its possible implementation by the local governments worldwide .
