"Resilient Nomads" is a documentary featuring 17 solutions that represent the new United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which shape the development agenda of the entire planet for the next 15 years. The goal is to inspire behavioral change, one of the most challenging obstacles for effective implementation of the SDGs.
For decades, experts have been acting in silos when it comes to the so-called sustainable development. However, the new SDGs represent a promise towards more integrated policies related to development that are fully aware of the need to incorporate environmental aspects to social and economic policies and vice-versa.
Facts and numbers, unfortunately, have been failing to drive action at the speed that our planet needs. Environmental degradation continues to put our lives at risk at an alarming rate. This shows why there is an urgent necessity to not only scale up practical solutions on the ground but also to seriously take into account the need to improve knowledge sharing beyond the usual suspects: the development community practitioners.
The negative effects of globalisation have been causing greater social inequality, including in the developed world, which contributes to short term thinking and the rise of political populism. The documentary "Resilient Nomads" is an attempt to connect the minds and hearts of people showcasing real leadership, entrepreneurship, and concrete examples of solutions representing the 17 themes of the sustainable development goals.
The project believes that art enhances social skills, cultural capital and creativity- all essential to overcome the most pressing global challenges of our times.
