This is the decade of action. Agenda 2030 and the Global Sustainable Development Goals (GSDG) are a global agenda for creating a future where no one is left behind. The 17 targets were adopted in September 2015 by all UN Member States.
The goals encompass all aspects of human and planetary well-being and are a universal call for measures to eradicate poverty, protect the earth, resolve the climate crisis, promote peace and justice and reduce inequalities and injustices in the world.
There are a lot of different initiatives based on agenda 2030 where the common goal is to create a change and to ”break habits” in order to reach the global goals before the year 2030.
To fulfill the global goals there are a lot of different methods, one of them is nudging. A nudge helps people make better choices for themselves without restricting their freedom of choice. It accomplishes this by making it easier for people to make a certain decision. For example: putting fruit at eye level counts as a nudge. Banning junk food does not.
The challenge is to create a visual representation for an innovative vision of how nudging could accelerate change and to make people more aware of there environmental impact on earth, based on the global goals.
