How we support the Global Goals

In 2007, MASK took on the challenge to help create a better world through creativity education. Here how our work supports all 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development:

    Goal 1. No poverty

    Poverty can be eradicated by unlocking an enormous potential of human resourcefulness. Finding transformative solutions to lack of food and clean water will help achieve permanent social change.

    Goal 4. Quality education

    Creativity education unlocks imagination, powers intellect, and engenders entrepreneurship and leadership skills. Creativity education - is the ultimate quality education that leads to quality jobs and lives.

    Goal 7. Affordable and clean energy

    Only creative people can come up with renewable new energy solutions that will counter climate change and mitigate one of the biggest threats to our own survival.

    Goal 10. Reduced inequality

    Too much of the world’s wealth is held by a small group of people. This means financial and social discrimination to the majority. Everyone must be allowed to realise their creative potential. When people are creative, they are self-sufficient, and the entire world prospers.

    Goal 13. Climate actions

    Creativity can combat a threat to climate change. Through innovation we can make the necessary changes to protect the planet and modernize our infrastructure to promote greater prosperity across the globe.

    Goal 16. Peace, justice and strong institutions

    Creativity is key to strong peace, democracy and institutions. Because, by definition, creativity means strong moral compass, empathy and passion to make improvements for the purpose of the common good. Lack of creativity means bureaucracy, persecution, injustice and abuse.

    Goal 2. Zero hunger

    Creative people can find solutions to sustainable agriculture. Their innovations can sustain the whole world’s population, increase productivity and production, maintain ecosystems, strengthen adaptation to climate change, improve land and soil quality, and resolve the fair distribution systems.

    Goal 5. Gender equality.

    Gender bias is undermining our social fabric and devalues us. It is not just a human rights issue; it is a huge waste of the world’s human potential. By denying all genders "the right to creativity", we deny them a chance to live life at its fullest. Equal access to education for creativity will benefit all world's citizens.

    Goal 8. Decent work and economic growth

    Creativity, innovation, entrepreneurship are key to the future of industry and economic growth.Technological upgrading originated by creative people achieves higher levels of economic productivity, new decent jobs and growth of modern enterprises.

    Goal 11. Sustainable cities and communities

    Creative people are always behind ground-breaking ideas that create safe, affordable and resilient cities with green and inspiring living conditions. Their ideas improve housing, transport systems and roads, and protect the world’s cultural and natural heritage.

    Goal 14. Life below water

    We have damaged our oceans and seas essential to our existence. Creative people can eliminate pollution and overfishing and protect all marine life around the world.

    Goal 17. Partnership for the goals.

    Team-creativity is the ground zero of all innovation. The Global Goals can be met only if we work together to build people’s capacity for technological and cultural advancement. To build a better world, we need to do two things - to invent and to collaborate.

    Goal 3. Good health and well-being

    Human ingenuity can win the fight against almost every disease. Creative people can devise preventive measures and modern, efficient healthcare for everyone.

    Goal 6. Clean water and sanitation

    Creative people can design affordable equipment and hygiene practices solutions that can stop unnecessary diseases and deaths.

    Goal 9. Industry, innovation, and infrastructure

    Only creative people can change status quo and meet future challenges to bring prosperity to communities across the globe. Their ingenuity will innovate sustainable technologies, build infrastructure and grow industries.

    Goals 12. Responsible consumption and production

    People that can invent can devise new and ethical ways to use natural resources. Their new ideas for waste generation and management of chemicals can reverse the harm that we have inflicted on the planet chasing material gains.

    Goal 15. Life on land

    We have damaged a life on land through deforestation, loss of natural habitats and land degradation. Creative people can find better ways to use and sustain our ecosystems and preserve our biodiversity. Creativity is key to our survival.
