The Kyushu University, SDGs Design Unit, conducts SDGs activities that aim to achieve a sustainable society. We screened a movie “Daddy Long Legs” that resonates with the SDGs philosophy at Ohashi Campus on December 2, 2019.
This movie featured the orphans in Africa and Uganda who lost their parents to AIDs and the orphans from the Tohoku Earthquake. The children came together to perform at the New York Broadway. The movie is in line with the SDGs goals: “Eliminate poverty / Quality education for all / Realize gender equality / Eliminate inequality in the country / Have peace and justice all the way.”
After the screening, a talk was held with Mr Shinji Shinoda and Professor Shigeki Inoue, Kyushu University SDGs Design Unit.
