What’s on Your World’s To Do List in Support of UN Global Goals?
Skypark shows support for Global Goal Number 13 ‘Tackling Climate Change’
As part of the annual Global Goals week, Project Everyone and partners launched The World’s To Do List Campaign 20-26 September, with the first Scottish physical activation of the UNs Global Goals on a series of huge sticky notes right here at Skypark! The campaign aims to raise awareness of and action for the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development, a plan adopted by all UN member states in 2015 to end poverty, conquer inequality and tackle the climate crisis by 2030.
We are proud that Skypark has been involved from the inception of this world-wide campaign and the first physical activation to go live in Scotland. This is a call to action to the world, that is visible to everyone in an everyday space for companies and organisations to get involved and share what’s on their ‘To Do List’ including for COP26, the UN Climate Conference in Glasgow in November. We are supporting Global Goal number 13 ‘Tackling Climate Change’ and your organisation can show its support for the global goals @#worldstodolist.
The campaign brings to life why the Goals are the World’s To Do List for people and planet using sticky notes – a set of playful yet profound messages which re-imagine the Goals as a series of short actionable ‘to do’s’, setting a clear reminder that we have the plan to fix the world’s problems, we just need the action to get it done.
Giant sticky notes will also be appearing in various physical locations as reminders of the immediate actions needed to be taken, as well as a large scale art project throughout India with the Rouble Nagi Art Foundation, painting murals across villages in five states while working with local communities to educate and support on the issues raised by the Goals.
The campaign will then grow, setting its sights on critical moments for the advancement of the Global Goals, beginning with COP26, the UN climate conference taking place in Glasgow in November. More physical activations will take place across multiple locations highlighting the climate focused Goals across issues from clean energy to ocean protection and restoration, as well as the two-way relationship between the climate crisis and issues such as poverty, hunger and gender inequality.
The artwork along the Clydeside Expressway, overlooking the COP26 summit venue is printed on a PVC free material called Kavalan, designed for responsible end of life disposal. It features a biodegrable coating and adheres to strict ecological standards in its production.
The campaign is spearheaded by a group of companies known as the Global Goals Business Avengers, comprised of Arm, Avanti, Commvault, Diageo, DPD Group, Google, Mars, NTT, Reckitt, Salesforce, SAP, Unilever and Wood. The companies represent over 700,000 employees, with a combined social media reach of over 100 million. Each company is the champion of one of the 17 Global Goals and is actively working to raise awareness of them and take actions within their own organisations to help achieve them.
