Comics about the U.N.’s Global Goals

sdg00_cover

This weekend the UN officially announced the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development – goals which are aimed to be met by 2030 and which must be spread far and wide around the entire globe.

What better way to communicate them than through comics? Margreet de Heer is proud to have cooperated with Reading with Pictures and Comics Uniting Nations to produce these 20 comics pages. Together, they read like a comic book, but the individual pages can also be used to illuminate separate goals.

Feel free to use them and spread them around! They can also be found on Margreets site, including a pdf and powerpoint.
