The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aren't something you might associate with a piece of meat, but that's just what they mean to one young artist.

For Marta Reguero, who's 15, her lifelike, three-dimensional recreation of a supermarket steak represents the exploitation of children and the need to do something about it.

The artwork scooped first prize in a competition run by Eduki Foundation in Switzerland in involving more than 1,500 students,who were asked for their take on the SDGs.

Here's Daniel Johnson's interview with Marta after the prize-giving ceremony at the UN in Geneva.
