Campaigns on digital screens worldwide, in the scope of the Global Week to #Act4SDGs
  • Social multiverse creators, Digital Village, launched a brand-new Global Week metaverse space where players could access a new and exciting virtual world to contribute to a ‘wish tree’ by virtually adding messages of hope, action, and peace to the tree.
  • Code Green, World of Women and the UN SDG Action Campaign organized a first-of-its-kind digital art exhibition supporting the Global Week to #Act4SDGs.

The artworks were exhibited at Goals House and in Central Park in NYC in September 2022, as well as on digital screens at more than 25 airports around the world in partnership with VINCI Airports.
