Project mission:

To deliver a masterplan series of social innovation festivals to take place in global cities throughout all continents on planet Earth. The Making Waves + fiiS Festivals are the onshore component of the SDG World Tour, a two year global expedition aimed at advancing and accelerating the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The Story

This highly ambitious and fully collaborative initiative is a partnership between MOTI and fiiS (Festival Internacional de Innovacion Social) under the larger initiative behind the SDG World Tour Foundation. Tapping into the local urban ecosystem of each city where the festivals take place to give visibility to those who are driving positive change, to connect change-makers through radical collaboration and to inspire a broad audience to come together in celebration, because changing the world should be fun. Set to kick off in August 2020 with the sail of the magnificent Clipper Stad Amsterdam, the ship’s journey has since been paused but the intention is to reach 17 locations around the world on a global mission to advance the United Nations 2030 Agenda.
