2018 Theme: A Planet for Tomorrow "Make the Planet Great Again"
The first poster below, "Women and Climate Change" was selected as a Top 100 and will be exhibited in towns around the world, starting with Paris, in September 2018. A book about the exhibition will be published.
All three posters are based on SDG 5: Gender Equality (UN Sustainable Development Goal), which I placed within the context of global warming.
The link between gender equality and global warming is more and more documented (UNFCCC Women & Climate Change) but awareness is still lacking. This is why I thought it was important to communicate the importance of women empowerment for our planet. Through education, a fairer representation and more equal rights in general, the effects of global warming could potentially be reversed.
Poster 1: "Women and Climate Change"
This design highlights that women should not be confined to house duties, as their role to rebuild the community after climate related damage is crucial.
Poster 2: "Give the Planet Her Dignity Back"
This design uses the paper-cut technique. It highlights both the earth and women's vulnerability, and how they are interlinked.
Poster 3: "Who Would You Rather Empower"
I think it is important to communicate the importance of women empowerment for our planet. With this though-provoking piece (shockvertising), I aimed at pushing both institutions and individuals (through their political representatives) to act.
