On the initiative of the United Nations 17 goals were set in 2015 to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Museon, the museum for science and culture in The Hague, asked NorthernLight to create an exhibition about these 17 Sustainable Development Goals that would inspire visitors to contribute their ideas and proceed to action. And so to make themselves heroes on our planet.
The setup of the experience is simple: a series of seventeen displays have been created, each examining a different Sustainable Development Goal and together encompassing the major challenges facing mankind today. Inspiring ways of ensuring the equitable distribution of food, water and energy and the acceptance of human diversity are shown. The exhibition focuses on the many kinds of action that can be taken to guarantee the sustainability of life on earth. From dramatic large-scale solutions to modest ideas that impact on a single square meter. OnePlanet makes it clear to visitors that they too have a part to play and incite them to think further about the problems and help to solve them. The interactive displays are presented in combination with items from the Museon’s multifaceted educational collection.
