About Heart 17

We curate a collective act for Hope.
Across silos.
United by Creativity.

why we exist

Hopelessness is spreading. The awareness around the Plan, the 17 Global Goals, is low. Important messages do not reach out. Now, when it’s needed more than ever, business and creatives have a role to play in telling their audiences about the Plan for a better, more sustainable tomorrow.

Social and environmental challenges don’t exist in silos, but in complex systems. We need to be disruptive and forward-looking. Breaking down silos between business, art, science and activism. We need to bring back hope.

In times of despair,​ optimism is a form of rebellion.​

what we do

We enable business, artists and youth ​to together turn despair into action,​ and action into hope. ​Using creativity as key enabler. As a partner of the UNDP,​ our partnership enables meaningful​ advances towards the Global Goals.

A clear brief ties together the initiative - business, artists, youth - to amplify the message and the impact that we hope to achieve​.

Way of working

One message.​

HEART 17’s mission is clear – that hope and action form a virtuous cycle where one can’t exist without the other. Creativity as key enabler.​ We will continue to work closely with the UNDP on identifying the key messages that need to be activated.​

Many voices.

Yearly on UN World Creativity and Innovation Day, HEART 17 curates a campaign to inspire hope and accelerate innovation towards the Global Goals. ​​

Based on UNDP knowledge, HEART 17 will create a brief and co-ordinate with its network to enable easy participation and spread of meaningful messages.
