Categories

MOBILIZER

This category is for initiatives that engage people in actions with a deeper investment of time than simple awareness raising actions. Examples of mobilisation include: collective or coordinated actions across cities/countries, series of SDG workshops, engaging communities in joint programmes or activities, large public demonstrations, and more.

STORYTELLER

This category is focused on powerfully communicating about the interconnectivity of the issues underpinning the goals – with bonus points for explicit references to the SDGs.  Different mediums for storytelling could include new media such as virtual or augmented reality, films, photo stories, cartoons, illustrations, performance.

CAMPAIGNER

This award targets campaigns where messaging appeals to broader or different audiences, who are not already aware of SDGs or supportive of the goals.

VISUALIZER

This award focusses on projects where complex concepts become readily understandable by visually presenting information in a compelling way. These may be animations or infographics which have reached a large or different audience, or form powerful reporting tools to governments

CONNECTOR

This category may include events that connect stakeholders and it is also seeking projects that creatively harness commitments or actions from different community members or stakeholders – for instance apps to trade skills/time or provide information for sustainable actions.

INCLUDER

The focus of this category is on civic empowerment more than on SDG implementation. For instance an initiative that engages marginalized populations in SDG decision making is more aligned with this category one that delivers services to them as beneficiaries. Leave No One Behind!

CREATIVE

Artist expression such as performance (song, theatre, dance, spoken word), art installations, paintings, poetry, animation and more. While creativity will be an element in many categories, this category focuses more on the process of engaging and empowering people in the SDGs through creative arts- rather than on the resulting story or message itself.
