Last week on 6 June, the global Fight Inequalities campaign was launched at the European Development Days.
The campaign was organised by civil society organisations from 15 EU countries who are working to increase awareness and push for the policy and social change needed to tackle inequality and poverty in Europe and beyond.
Inequality cuts across all of the Sustainable Development Goals. Tackling inequality should therefore be a priority, as none of the Sustainable Development Goals can be achieved.
The campaign calls for societies to be more inclusive for women, children, different ethnic groups, marginalised people, and for EU citizens to become agents of change in their own communities.
Representatives from EU institutions took part in the campaign launch that took place at the ‘Make Europe Sustainable For All’ stand at the EDD event.
The #FightInequalities stand at the EDDs created an interactive and enriching experience. The 17 steps towards equality game, depicted all of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The player would walk through various stories of inequalities happening to people in their everyday lives, both from Europe and beyond. This way, the player would learn about the different forms that inequality can take. After, the visitor had the opportunity to contribute to the inequalities mosaic with a picture and a quote reflecting the outcomes of the interaction.
