At the inauguration ceremony of the art installation, Anantha Durraiappah said,
“Education can happen through a range of media and UNESCO MGIEP has chosen comics to have a wider outreach. Our target is to get common people, especially the young, interested in the Sustainable Development Goals.”
The Comic aims to make the SDGs a reality. It says
“It is essential that we adopt creative approaches to solving world problems. At UNESCO MGIEP, we have developed a graphic novel to reach young people, who we believe, are the torch bearers for this change. To sow the ideas of peace, sustainability and global citizenship, it is important that we speak to young people in ways they find interesting. The displays here are the result of this idea. UNESCO MGIEP engaged two creative minds, Kavita Singh and Santosh Kale who sat with our team comprising of academicians, scientists, educators and freethinkers and have created this fictional narrative. If you like this idea and would like to talk to us further, write at firstname.lastname@example.org“
