In celebration of its 7th anniversary, the Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change collaborates with Mexico-based non-profit art and sustainability initiative Xoloplastics to produce a small amount of unique eco-tangram puzzles from recycled plastics for our Friends of the Museum. In the theme of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the giveaway campaign aims to arouse public awareness of the problems of marine plastic pollution and climate change, and encourage a sustainable lifestyle.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

In September 2015, world leaders agreed to set the world on a path towards sustainable development through the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This agenda includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs, which set out quantitative objectives across the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainable development — all to be achieved by 2030.

The SDGs are unique in that they call for action by all countries, poor, rich and middle-income, to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs, including education, health, social protection and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and protecting the environment.

Xoloplastics, an art and sustainability project

Xoloplastics is a project by Imaginalco A.C., a nonprofit organization in Mexico, which creates art with a positive social and environmental impact. Xoloplastics promotes community development, creates jobs and encourages climate action and resources recycling by transforming disused plastics into art pieces.
