Connecting communities with SDGs

Engagement, art and the Sustainable Development Goals: connecting communities with goals in rural Nepal

Project Summary 

Our project engages a community in Janakpur in the southern plains of Nepal about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) using intergenerational discussions between artists and students, co-creative wall painting, and an SDG festival at a local school. 

Specifically we will:
•    Produce images of relevance to young and old which represent the SDGs and their meaning to local communities from the Mithila culture
•    Enable discussion about the achievement of the SDGs, and what might facilitate or impede their achievement among teachers, students, artists, political representatives, health workers and community members 
•    Provide an exemplar about how to engage communities in the achievement of the SDGs.
