STORYLINE
A new hip-hop music video, entitled “Sustainable Development Goals: Improve Life All Around the Globe", was launched by the United Nations on 13 June 2016 to mark the 100 day countdown to the International Day of Peace.

The video was produced by Flocabulary in partnership with the Education Outreach Section of the Outreach Division of the United Nations Department of Public Information, and features Focabulary artisis Ike Ramos and Nitty Scott. The video aims to teach young people throughout the world about the importance of the Sustainable Development Goals and how they can help build peace. It is available in all six United Nations official languages.

In his 100 day countdown message issued today to provide an opportunity for civil society and educational institutions to promote the ideal of peace, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has called for a day of global ceasefire and non-violence. This year’s theme – the Sustainable Development Goals: Building Blocks for Peace - highlights how ending poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring broadly shared prosperity all contribute to global harmony. “When people feel secure in their abilities to provide for their families, when they are given access to healthy lives, and when they feel truly included in their societies, then they are much less likely to engage in conflict”, Secretary-General Ban said. “Peace runs like a thread through all 17 of the Goals.”

The music video, which breaks down the complex 17 Sustainable Development Goals into easy to understand concepts, will inspire young people around the world to take action to support the United Nations development agenda, which is essential to achieving peace.

The International Day of Peace, observed annually on 21 September, was established in 1981 by the United Nations General Assembly. The United Nations invites all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities during the Day, and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.

The Sustainable Development Goals were unanimously adopted by all 193 Member States of the United Nations at a historic summit in New York in September 2015.
