Reconnect with nature in the Forest for Change

The issue

In 2015, the UN member states set 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development – a plan to end poverty, fight inequality and tackle climate change by 2030.

What we can do about it

This summer, the 17 Global Goals are being brought to life as 400 trees create the Forest for Change in London’s Somerset House. At the heart of the Forest are 17 amazing pillars of art and creativity, representing each of the Global Goals.

Discover facts about the state of the world and add your voice to the ‘Voices for Change’ audio installation by sharing the change you want to see in the world.

The Forest is carbon positive, and every tree will later be donated to and replanted in London boroughs, creating a living legacy to make our air cleaner and our lives greener.

With less than 10 years left to achieve the Global Goals, actions must be taken to build a better, fairer tomorrow. So, visit the Forest, reconnect with nature, learn about the Goals and share the change you want to see in the world.

Every voice matters. If you’re not able to make it in person, you can still add your voice.

Speak up and share the change you want to see in the world
