Text and pictures received from Peter Gyllan

Danish designers shed light on the recently established United Nations’ 17 sustainable development goals

Responding to the initiative taken by Chora Connection - a Denmark-based charitable organization promoting sustainability - seventeen Danish designers have created posters featuring, one-by-one, the 17 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS, which all United Nations member countries must strive to achieve by year 2030.

With the purpose of promoting the 17 recently established UN goals for global  sustainable development, as well as, generally communicating the ideas of sustainability to the Danes, the whole poster collection has just been launched, and is soon to be exhibited in Copenhagen’s Design Museum, and later in the Poster Museum of Aarhus.
One among the contributors, Mervyn Kurlansky – the presently Denmark-based graphic designer of Pentagram fame - has been coordinating the project on behalf of Chora Connection.

According to Chora Connection’s Board Member, Karen Blincoe:
“If the UN 17 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS are to be implemented before year 2030 – as the world’s 193 state-leaders have all agreed on – everybody across the society must get down to work. Thanks to this initiative the designers involved are helping the Danish society in sheding light on, and adapting the goals within the Danish cultural context.”
