Street Art for the 2030 Agenda

| | ,

In the lesson dedicated to CIVIC EDUCATION with the 8th Grade, we tackled the theme of The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, analyzing its 17 goals. We watched the work done by a group of Italian and international STREET ARTISTS in the city of TURIN. The initiative is called “TOward 2030: What are you doing?” and was implemented to disseminate and promote the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). “What are you doing?” is an urban art initiative that promotes sustainability and transformed the city, from the center to the periphery, into an amplifier of the 17 +1 Goals of the United Nations, through the universal language of street art.

With the students, we analyzed the 17 objectives of the Agenda and we discussed their importance and their realization for our future. Observing the numerous street artists who wanted to represent the goals on the buildings in Turin, we too thought of a mural dedicated to one of the Sustainable development Goals for 2030.

Each student chose a goal and designed a graphic idea, talking about it with the teacher.

Subsequently, each student chose a photocopy of a building and drew on a sheet of tracing paper the area to be decorated with the mural. The design of the mural was made with colored pencils and/or markers ON THE TRACING PAPER which was then cut out and pasted on the photocopy. The effect is that of a real mural painted on an urban building. Here are our creations!
