SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT PENCIL
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries—developed and developing—in a global partnership. The SDGs 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.
By introducing the Sustainable Development Pencil, The One Club for Creativity aims to reward the teams who chose to utilize their creative talents and resources to better the world we live in, and contribute to securing a sustainable future for all.
The Sustainable Development Pencil will be awarded to work that:
- Proves to have a sustained and measurable impact over time
- Is scalable by other brands and/or places
- Changes behavior in addition to raising awareness
- Involves a strategic partnership
REGULAR DEADLINE: January 31, 2020
FINAL EXTENDED DEADLINE: February 28, 2020
Your submitted work should address one or more of the 17 Goals to Transform Our World. Please note, work will NOT be awarded separately by category; however, selecting the individual goal which best describes the intention of your work will help the jury with their judging process. It is not necessary for you to submit the same work more than once for the Sustainable Development Award. When entering, please select the ONE goal which you consider the primary focus of your campaign.
