The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) would help us achieve the vision defined in Agenda 2030. A vision of just and inclusive societies and the lasting protection of planet earth and its natural resources, amongst other aspirations. It is indeed impossible to achieve sustainable development without a greater awareness building about SDGs in people, specifically among the youth.
Do you feel that popular mass media (TV shows/films) could more effectively help us transition towards the sustainable development goals (SDGs)? Is the current messaging detrimental to SDGs? Show us how and provide an alternative positive narrative.
Based on the entries, participants will be selected to present their opinions in front of media industry-heads and 10,000 youth at the Climate Jamboree Finale scheduled from 1-3 November 2018.
Visual media affects us in both positive and negative ways as it pervades our living rooms in the form of televisions shows, advertisements and cinema. It is both – a reflection of social behaviour and a catalyst capable of inducing change. It can be a powerful medium to convey the realities of climate change and the challenges of sustainable development but, an ill-considered use of it may also encourage behaviours which are contrary to the spirit of the SDGs.
Clip & Tell challenges the participants to view popular media offerings through the frame of Sustainable Development Goals, find content that influences the audience positively or negatively vis-à-vis one or more of the sustainability elements and share how they think it could have been presented differently. The content could be anything - a short video clip from a daily soap you love, a movie which you cherish or an advertisement you remember.
Tell us whether the selected clip indirectly promotes or deviates from sustainable development? Why? Whether an alternative portrayal was possible? If Yes, then what could it have been?
