This year' s topic: Sustainability

In 2015, 193 countries adopted a vision for the world in 2030. The vision is ambitious: a world of peace and prosperity built on a a healthy environment. A world of improved health, access to quality education, good jobs and reduced inequalities, among other aspirations. This vision, outlined in the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), is our shared blueprint for a better, sustainable future. To achieve that future, we must look at the world today, understand the possibilities for change and take action to make that change happen. In cooperation with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the Science Film Festival 2020 aims to explore these possibilities. Through an international selection of films on science, technology and the environment, the festival helps expand the conversation on the issues central to the SDGs, and through this conversation, helps to inspire action for the betterment of people and planet.

The festival has also provided suggested teaching materials for learning activities connected to this year's theme of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which complement the films and can be found online on the Science Film Festival website.
