17 stories for 2030

Online the first 4 podcasts and second series dedicated to Goals 3, 6, 11 and 16 now open

“History park” by Jacopo Straccialini, “La video dieta” (The video diet) by Alice Felino, “Quel cartello in mezzo al mare” (That sign in the middle of the sea) by Linda Terziroli, “Una ricorrenza speciale” (A special occasion) by Carla Negrini. These are the first four stories about the possible measures that can be taken to transform the world, putting the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda into action.

With 213 stories submitted, the 10th of May saw the conclusion of the first series of “17 stories for 2030”, the project conceived by the Unipolis Foundation and developed by Podcastory in collaboration with the Foundation and with the endorsement of ASviS – the Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development to produce an original series of podcasts dedicated to the argument through 16 literary competitions that will be held over the following months. The aim is to investigate and share the reflections of the community on how they imagine being able to transform the world according to the SDGs.

The four podcasts, now available on the main podcasting platforms, discuss possible worlds with the focus on “Poverty and inequalities”: they explore historic figures of the past in the search for new impetus for achieving gender equality; they identify innovative solutions for combating hunger; they envisage future scenarios in which poverty has been defeated and the way this was achieved is celebrated with a commemoration day; they highlight the hopes and dreams of those that face inequality on multiple levels.

The second series of contests on the topic “City, services and institutions” and dedicated to Goals 3, 6, 11 and 16, is now open. To take part you can submit your story between 18 June and 15 August, filling out the form on the Podcastory website. In this case too the selected stories will be transformed into podcasts to listen to online as part of the playlist dedicated to the 17 Goals of the 2030 Agenda.
