Social, economic and environmental changes are great challenges to which it is vital to respond. The17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations constitute an important event because all the States of the world agree on the same project, based on five main points: Peace, People, Planet, Prosperity and Alliances. These shared global goals constitute what is called the 2030 Agenda, which establishes common criteria for tackling global problems.
In this context, art, with its capacity to transform the person and the community, is configured as a powerful tool for social change that promotes awareness and envisions solutions to combat global warming, economic crises or social conflicts.
