A coffee table book, highlighting the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. 17 goals. 9 billion people. 1 future.
In today’s world, sustainability has become a recurrent subject. An area where global conscience is bound to increase. The 2030 NOW coffee table book was created to help raise the bar through visually stimulating content. Under the conviction, that we cohesively need to act NOW, if there is any hope of meeting the UN deadline of presenting solutions for the largest challenges facing our planet by no later than 2030.
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the UN in 2015 sets forth a sustainable and inspiring course of action for our planet by 2030. Sadly, too few people are familiar with the goals. The project fills an enormous void and will serve to raise crucial awareness in achieving the 17 Goals.
Hopefully, the book will contribute in building a better future when considering the enormity of each Goal. Goals range from eliminating hunger, improving social conditions enabled through sustainable actions. A healthy planet, where animals thrive within a sustainable ecosystem. As individuals, we are obliged to understand the 17 Goals and start contributing in some way.
2030 NOW uses inspiring images and a strong narrative to increase awareness of the 17 Goals.
A series of aerial photographs by the renowned French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand highlights the state of the planet. Yann Arthus-Bertrand is a strong advocate for climate action and is known for his work Earth From Above, Human and Home.
17 globally known voices join as ambassadors along with 17 artists and 17 inspiring local heroes, all sharing their personal commitment to achieving the World Goals. Each individual is compelled to share their vision of a better world.
Among ambassadors featured in the book are: Glenn Close, Sir Richard Branson, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Michelle Yeoh, Betrand Piccard, Zoe Saldana, Jorge Chamine, Richard Curtis, Paul Polman and Nadine Labaki.
Amongst the 17 local heroes, that are helping to promote change within their immediate communities are: Zainab Salbi, Celine Cousteau, Jan Eriksson and Dr Evan Atar Adaha.
17 ART 2030 artists offer an artistic vision through their work. The book features Ai Weiwei, Yoko Ono, Tomás Saraceno, Jenny Holzer and Olafur Eliasson to name a few.
