The 2023 Calendar: The Synergy of the SDGs brings a proposal completely different from anything we’ve done before. For this edition, we brought nine Brazilian artists , with exclusive illustrations inspired by the Sustainable Development Goals. Their choice was due to the immense quality of their works, and the context of diversity they represent.
Through paintings, watercolors, collages and other forms of creation, they presented their views on the SDGs , producing works that reinforce Synergia’s initiatives with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established by the United Nations (UN) ) in line with the 2030 Agenda .
With the proposal of Calendar 2023: The Synergy of the SDGs , the artists worked with elements, colors and shapes that represented the idealization of the SDGs, such as more sustainable cities, reduction of inequalities and quality education.
