Art helps make the world a better place

In September 2015, the 193 member states of the United Nations signed up to a set of international development principles and targets known as the sustainable development goals. These were the product of three years of consultations with individuals, community organisations, businesses, scientists, academics and governments.  The result is nothing less than a universal, integrated and transformative vision for a better world.It is not surprising that the 17 sustainable development goals include such things as ending poverty, promoting education and combating climate change. Perhaps less obvious is number 16 which recognises the need for peace and justice in any sustainable future.
