Achievements

A selection of some of the initiative and works HEART 17 curated.

Co-ordinating a COVID-19 information campaign

In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, HEART 17 activated its partner relationships with H&M, Mojang and Spotify to instill in their audiences safe practices during the pandemic. A campaign that reached over 10 million people.

Turning the United Nations Building into a beacon of hope

On the eve of Stockholm+50, HEART 17 in partnership with the Permanent mission of Sweden to the United Nations audaciously turned the UN building in New York City into a beacon of hope.

A vibrant, expressive manifesto that highlighted youth leaders and artists from around the world was projected onto the UN Building, creating an art installation that transformed hope into action and put the focus on the need for youth inclusion to build our common future.

A soundtrack for a better future

Working with Epidemic Sound’s roster of global, up-and-coming musicians, HEART 17 turned the Global Goals into music that can be used by partners in their creative expressions supporting the goals.

Wear your convictions. Artists for change.

Working with Creator Studio – part of the H&M Group, we selected a group of recognized artists, creators and changemakers to spread the UNDP’s message of advancement towards the Global Goals.

Proceeds go to initiatives supported by United Nations Development Programme.

Heartbeat meeting: Exploring the power of creativity to create change

HEART 17 ran a one day meeting in collaboration with Fotografiska that explored the themes of activism and hope with some of Sweden’s most well known artists.

Cross-silos actions amplifying youth and creativity

UN World Creativity and Innovation Day powered by HEART 17. During the pandemic we explored ways of working to highlight creativity and youth voices as a key to change. Inspiration by launching heart17.com as a digital platform for hope and action.

In collaboration with The Royal Swedish Opera, Stockholm Art Week, UNDP (United Nations Development Programme) and EY Doberman we are celebrating culture, creativity and collaboration. Reaching around nine millions people.
