Communicating the Sustainable Development Goals

In this video, Geoff Carter introduces the SDG Wedding Cake as a useful tool for communicating the Sustainable Development Goals.

In the video we introduce an approach for explaining the 17 UN SDGs. The ‘Wedding Cake’ was developed by the Stockholm Resilience Centre, a research centre that focuses on resilience and sustainability at Stockholm University.

Watch the video and then consider how you would use the infographic to promote the SDGs in your own organisation.

Does it work for you, or would you prefer to use the 17 rectangular boxes?

Can you see an even better way than the Wedding Cake to communicate the essence of the SDGs? For example, how does this model compare with Kate Raworth’s Doughnut Economics view of the world?
