In 2015 at the initiative of the United Nations, countries adopted a set of 17 goals to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Part of a new sustainable development agenda, each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years. To prompt the public into action, Museon – the museum for science and culture in The Hague, the Netherlands – asked us to express these sustainable development goals in an inspiring motivational exhibition. Critical world problems can often appear abstract, particularly to a younger audience. One Planet challenges visitors to examine the sustainable development goals and come up with their own answers to the big questions.
