Joining Hands For A Better Tomorrow

Throughout September 2017, Green Cross International (GCI) was delighted to present the sixth edition of “The Future We Want” Photo Exhibition, which was displayed along the Quai Wilson on Geneva’s scenic lakefront.  Last year’s edition of the exhibit was presented first at the United Nations in Geneva and then traveled to COP22 in Marrakech, Morocco, in a special display for leaders and decision-makers. The 2017 Exhibition – under the theme “Joining Hands for a Better Tomorrow” – once again showcased projects run by GCI and its partners that help advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) around the world.

Sustainable development aims to meet human development needs without compromising the ability for nature to thrive and provide resources, while preserving the ecosystems upon which human society depends. The projects featured in the 2017 Exhibition emphasized community development – through education, agriculture, business and infrastructure, for instance – as well as the use of renewable resources to improve livelihoods, provide clean energy, enhance water and food security, and build sustainable and resilient societies.

GCI believes in the need to protect and preserve life on our planet, and contributes to sustainable development through 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 efforts being made to advance SDGs on all continents. The aim is to bring together ideas and encourage initiatives for creating a more sustainable world, whilst keeping future generations in mind. The 2017 edition provided an inspiring welcome to the GCI General Assembly, which met in Geneva in the days following the Exhibition, and the organization warmly thanks the City of Geneva and all exhibition partners.

All 60 images featured in the 2017 Exhibition can be viewed in the gallery below.
