The UN’s ‘Global Goals’ are a series of ambitious targets to end poverty, fight inequality and tackle climate change for everyone by 2030. According to the initiative, if the goals are met, they ensure the health, safety and future of the planet for everyone on it.

Projected on the north tower and general assembly wall of the UN headquarters in September 2015, the 10-minute animated show introduced each of the 17 Global Goals, presenting them in an accessible and visually exciting way. The piece used DWP Live’s d3 4×4 Pro VFC-equipped media servers and 16 Barco HDF W30 and 20 Barco HDX W20 projectors.

The Global Goals launch week came about through a partnership with Global Citizen, a content, events and campaigning platform for the movement to end extreme poverty by 2030 and Project Everyone. Project Everyone is the brainchild of Richard Curtis, a filmmaker and founder of Comic Relief. The goal of Project Everyone was to share these goals with all seven billion people on the planet over the course of a week.
