Animations for SDGs and Targets (2020-21)

Principal Supervisor(s): Dr. LI Ming Kenneth

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are promoted worldwide and in CUHK. However, a report from Sustainable Development Solution Network (SDSN) in 2018 indicated that the awareness and popularity of SDGs among young peoples in Hong Kong is very low. Therefore, animation videos are produced to enhance the promotion of SDGs to young peoples, especially CUHK students. With tailor-made illustrations together with voice-over narration, the animation is an engaging and enjoyable format for information delivery among the youngsters. Most currently available animation videos illustrate only the titles of the SDGs and some related situations. None of them focus on the targets, which are important to really understand the details of the SDGs. To fill in the missing pieces, this project aims to produce short animation videos for the promotion of nine selected SDGs and their 88 targets. The animations are freely accessible by the general public. These SDGs are the most relevant to the GE foundation courses and some UGE courses.
