United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
The Visioneers demonstrate progress towards the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
The Visioneers Virtual Expo showcases outstanding people and projects making extraordinary contributions for good in the world. Their work is displayed in the Masterworks Emporium across several categories of human creativity. The UN 17 SDGs are at the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by all Members of the United Nations in 2015, which provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.
The SDGs are an urgent call for action by all countries in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests. The work of the Visioneers provides on-the-ground evidence of progress towards the achievement of the SDGs.

The projection brings to life each of the 17 Goals, to raise awareness about the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
