The 17FOR17 campaign poster exhibition opens to the public on January 13th 2017.The campaign is the outcome of a collaboration between Chora Connection and 17 distinguished Danish designers, who has created 17 posters interpreting the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The 17 posters will be featured at a new exhibition at Design Museum Denmark, Bredgade 68, 1260 Copenhagen.

17 Danish designers, including photographer Jan Grarup, design company E-types and designer Per Arnoldi, have each contributed with unique interpretations of a single development goal, in order to bring these to life. The purpose of the poster campaign was to convey the 17 SDGs and thereby increase the knowledge of the global goals amongst Danish citizens.

At the reception, Chora Connection together with the Head of Library and Research at Design Museum Denmark, Lars Dybdahl, welcomed and introduced the 17FOR17 poster campaign, also referencing how climate and sustainability have historically been communicated through posters.

Following Lars Dybdahl was board member of Chora Connection and Head of Corporate Sustainability Affairs at Novozymes, Claus Stig Pedersen. He gave a personal account of how it is possible to make the world a better place, while making money! At Novozymes they see the 17 Sustainable Development Goals as a business opportunity while also making a positive difference in the world.

Chora Connection would like to thank all 17 designers for their unique contributions to the poster campaign, as well as thank designer and illustrator Mervyn Kurlansky for coordinating the project. Thanks also goes to Claus Stig Pedersen for his introduction, and Lars Dybdahl for contributing his knowledge and expertise in the field of poster art. Many thanks to Design Museum Denmark for hosting the exhibition.
