GOAL 17 – GET TOGETHER NOW! is a film project about the implications and opportunities of the 17 Global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) regarding the prospects for youth participation. The goals are recounted on film in 17 segments, each by a different class from Nürtingen Primary School in Kreuzberg, Berlin. All film episodes were researched, artistically developed and realised by the children involved as a contribution to their sustainability goal.
During their collaboration on the GOAL 17 – Children make the world! project in 2022, the children came up with the idea of communicating the goals as a school to other children and educators in order to envision and propagate a future world community. The children looked at questions such as: How can as many people as possible engage with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals? Why can’t we have a say, even though it is our future at stake? How can we reach a large audience? How can we make the adults, who decide our future and the health of the planet, take us seriously?
And so came about the idea of a collective film project on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
The films will function as learning material – both within and beyond Nürtingen Primary School.
The children and teachers intend to create a material box as accompanying learning material to broadcast the films and the subject matter of the 17 goals to children and adults.
The 17 episodes will be produced over time and presented here:
