Joining Hands For A Better Tomorrow

This September, Green Cross International (GCI) brings you the sixth edition of “The Future We Want” photo exhibition, which will be shown along the Quai Wilson on Geneva’s lakefront. Last year’s edition of the exhibit was presented at the United Nations in Geneva and at COP22 in Marrakech, Morocco, on display for leaders and decision-makers.

The 2017 exhibition once again features projects from around the world, run by GCI and its partners, which help communities in need and advance Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), such as clean energy, water and food security, and sustainable livelihoods.

Sustainable development aims to meet human development goals without compromising the ability for nature to provide resources, and preserving ecosystems upon which economy and society depends. Such projects emphasize the development of communities – through education, agriculture, business and infrastructure, for instance – as well as the use of renewable resources to improve their livelihoods.

GCI believes in the need to protect and preserve life on our planet, and contributes to sustainable development with its mission “to respond to the combined challenges of security, poverty and environmental degradation to ensure a sustainable and secure future”.

“The Future We Want” exhibition gives us a snapshot of some of the efforts being made to advance SDGs around the world. The aim is to bring together ideas and encourage initiatives for creating a more sustainable world, whilst keeping future generations in mind.
