2030 Agenda - UN Mexico + CCEMx

Culture is the transversal axis and a fundamental sector to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out in the 2030 Agenda. In September 2015, world leaders adopted a set of global objectives to eradicate poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all people as part of a new sustainable development agenda.

To achieve these goals we all have to do our part: governments, the private sector, civil society and everyone. In this sense, within the framework of objective 17 of the SDGs on partnerships for development, the Cultural Center of Spain, the United Nations Office in Mexico, Gran Salon Mexico together with the collaboration of the General Coordination of Advisors and International Affairs of the Government of Mexico City joined efforts to present an exhibition where 17 illustrators from Mexico, Spain, Venezuela, Argentina, Chile and Uruguay graphically present each of the objectives of the 2030 Agenda.

Each one of them contributed a unique vision to generate a series of posters that bring children and youth closer to the issues raised in the SDGs. The above through a close and colorful narrative and graphic language.

To meet the objective of this exhibition, Gran Salon Mexico chose Ibero-American illustrators with long and not so long careers, with different work techniques to have diversity in the way of approaching each objective. They are: Alejandra Ballesteros, Emilia Schettino, Caro Martínez “Chabaski”, Catalina Bu, María Luque, Pamela Medina, Francisco Cunha, Manuel Bueno, David Adiego Sánchez, Alejandro Magallanes, Beto Petiches, Carolina Monterrubio, Abraham Bonilla Núñez, Manuel Vargas, Juan Palomino, Alfonso de Anda, Mariana Roldán.

This exhibition was an activity carried out in the context of the Third World Forum of Cities and Territories of Peace, Mexico City 2020-2021.
