Project Everyone – engaging the world in ensuring a sustainable future

Project Everyone is an ambitious new campaign which aims to share news and information about the global sustainable development goals with 7 billion people around the world – in just 7 days!

#globalgoals and #wehaveaplan

Chiwetel Ejiofor, Freida Pinto and Richard Curtis launch the first ever global cinema ad campaign at Cannes Lions to shine a spotlight on the #globalgoals which will be adopted at the UN this September.

Project Everyone was founded by Richard Curtis (film maker and founder of Comic Relief) and its aim is to make the global sustainable development goals, which world leaders will adopt in September this year, the most famous goals in the world.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) address important issues including ending extreme poverty, fighting inequalities and addressing climate change and will guide global development planning until 2030. The SDGs will replace the Millennium Development Goals which have provided a framework for national development agendas for the past 15 years.

The global goals campaign will help ensure that everyone knows about the them, so that they are successfully acted upon. The more people that know about the Goals, the more people will work to ensure global leaders drive change. Building citizen awareness of the 17 Global Goals is the best way to ensure that they are implemented.

Richard Curtis says: “I would love everyone to get behind the mission to make the Goals famous. We are targeting every website and billboard, every TV and radio station, every cinema, every community, every school and every mobile phone network with the task of carrying a simple message about the Goals for the 7 days after they are launched”.
