Active for the SDGs – new tool and campaign for municipalities and citizens

By Sara Schmitt Pacífico, Climate Alliance

A good life is simple – campaign

Cities and towns are where life really happens. How can this life be made into a good life? Both for individuals and entire communities?

In our campaign “A good life is simple”, we showcase positive examples and offer new ways for you to integrate climate protection into your daily life. Incentives have been created in the fields of energy, mobility, consumption and nutrition to empower you to become active. We offer free materials in more than 13 languages. Use the posters and share them via social media, put them up in cafes, buses or your own office. The campaign is an easy way to communicate the SDGs through a progressive and positive way!

Join the campaign, reach out to your citizens and start a new movement. Whether posters, postcards or adverts in buses – we can gladly supply digital materials free of charge. A good life for all can only be achieved if we work together.

Overview campaign:

  • 1 campaign
  • 4 topics
  • 10 motifs
  • 13 languages



Change the future – online tool

Why wait when I can shape my future?

We need to work together to achieve social transformation. Get involved and join us today!

The “Change the Future” online tool offers municipalities, groups and individuals the opportunity to make a direct commitment to achieving a good life for all. The activities from the fields of energy, mobility, consumption and nutrition we have compiled suggest a variety of ways to get involved – either alone or as a team. The tool gives some preliminary impetus and ideas – especially for those who are not already active.

Overview campaign:

  • 1 online tool
  • 4 topics
  • 24 suggestions to become active
  • 808 potential changer points

Both offers are part of the EuropeAid project “Change the Power – (Em)Power to Change. Local Authorities towards the SDGs and Climate Justice”, as part of the DEAR program. “Change the Power  (Em)Power to Change” aims to empower local authorities / cities and towns in localising the SDGs and fostering a growing awareness and understanding of global interdependencies – not only as LA as such but with the support and engagement of their citizens. With the continuation and update of the successful campaign “A Good Life is Simple” we call attention on different topics, like energy, mobility, consumption etc. with a simple and thrilling message: Everyone can contribute and become part of the movement.
