UNSDGs Emoji project

We are excited to announce the launch of a new grassroots
campaign to develop and make available an emoji for each of
the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals. 

What are the UNSDGs?

The United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieving a better and
more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related
to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice.


Why emojis?

Emojis are able to act as a proxy for gestures, voice tones as well as physical expressions.
The accessibility of emojis, and their role as emotional indicators, means they are
unique in their ability to inform and influence people’s relationship to an idea.

We feel that putting the UNSDG into emoji form will be a crucial step in
helping the UN spread awareness of the UNSDG’s framework.


So what is the project?

The UNSDG Emoji project will engage students in a leading role in bringing this project
to fruition. We believe that the combination of a youthful perspective and relevant support
from econome has the potential to not only bring this project to life, but to act as an
example of what student learners can achieve when given the right support.


And finally the aim

Econome aims to partner with relevant industry and socially minded organisations. Our hope is
that this will provide students with the skill-sets and resources necessary to design a unique emoji for
each UNSDG, and successfully lobby the Unicode consortium for the inclusion of their designs. 
We hope the campaign will result in the increased accessibility and awareness of the
UNSDGs for the users of over 3 billion smartphones worldwide.
