Project mission:

The Making Waves + fiiS Festivals are a series of social innovation festivals to take place in global cities throughout all continents on planet Earth. The 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. Tapping into the local urban ecosystem aiming to give visibility to those who are driving positive change, to connect change-makers through radical collaboration, to inspire a broad audience, and to come together in celebration, because changing the world should be fun.

The Story

A highly ambitious and fully collaborative initiative, the Making Waves + fiiS Festivals are being developed in a partnership between MOTI and fiiS (Festival Internacional de Innovacion Social) under the larger initiative behind the SDG World Tour Foundation. Set to kick off in August 2020 with the sail of the magnificent Clipper Stad Amsterdam, the ship’s journey will stop in 17 locations around the world on a global mission to advance the UN 2030 Agenda to raise awareness and accelerate progress on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
