The Danish sustainability organisation, Chora Connection, carries out projects in Denmark using the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a framework.
Chora Connection develops and implements innovative and sustainable prototypes in the danish society, in collaboration with different partners.
The UN SDGs, and their related 169 sub-targets, were agreed upon by 193 UN member states in 2015, to direct countries’ efforts toward solving the greatest global problems by 2030. As part of this united effort, Denmark has a responsibility to support global sustainable development through realising the UN SDGs in a Danish context.
Chora Connection has engaged 17 well-known Danish designers to interpret each of the 17 UN SDGs as part of the poster campaign #17For17. The result is 17 inspiring illustrations of the UN’s ambitious goals.
“The UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals is the most ambitious vision for global development ever created. If these goals are to be realised, it will require strong, e ec- tive leadership. At AMB17ION we will take on this respon- sibility and leadership together.” Steen Hildebrandt
