"On 1 January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development — adopted by world leaders in September 2015 at a historic UN Summit — officially came into force. Over the next fifteen years, with these new Goals that universally apply to all, countries will mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind."

BPW International's 2017 - 2020 Triennium theme is Empowering Women to Realize Sustainable Development Goals.

awakening

A booklet of essays and art reflecting on the progress and future of each SDG, published by the Office of the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, 2018.

"In this publication, experts in wide-ranging fields give us a sense of what each goal entails, what progress has been made, and what work lies ahead. Their words are urgent, reflecting the bewildering pace of change...

...The art in this volume reflects the genius of the human spirit, evoking in a vivid, rich, and unsentimental way our relationships with one another and with the world around us. The art invites us to reflect on how we can strengthen these relationships for the good of humanity and the planet we call home." ~The Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, OC, OOnt is the 29th Lieutenant Governor of the Canadian province of Ontario.

"Since the earliest times, our natural world has been a profound source for art makers. The power and majesty, the beauty and mystery, and most importantly the permanence of the natural landscape have often been a font of inspiration for artists. More recently, the changes and challenges we face in sustaining our ecology have become the subject and inspiration for a new generation of artists. Our increasing awareness and understanding of the dynamic ecologies that sustain us—social, economic, and natural—have driven a new engagement for artists across Canada and around the world. In parallel with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the artworks selected for Awakening track that transformation and testify to the power of art to open our minds and hearts to our full responsibility and our greatest potential." ~ Bruce Mau, Canadian-born designer, innovator, visionary and author, 2018.
