Diversity for Sustainability
This image is a statement on diversity and the need for interracial and ethnical support, communication, collaboration and care. It’s a comment on the relationship between third world countries and first world countries. First world countries are represented by the paler hand that is slightly higher than the darker hand. The darker hand represents third world and developing countries. The rest of the bodies are not seen, only the hands so that the hands can properly represent a generalization of first world and third world countries and privileged majorities and underrepresented minorities. The picture speaks on where the world is with this important sustainability issue and yet how much further the world needs to go. The picture emphasizes the importance of diversity and its need for improvement worldwide. It calls first world countries to take action and raise up the third world countries and minorities in order to better the entirety of the world.
The lighter hand is slightly higher than the darker hand in order to represent the advantages first world countries and majorities have over third world, struggling countries and minorities. First world countries and privileged majorities have the economic infrastructure and resources to aid third world countries and minorities and help raise them up economically, politically and overall. The two hands are holding each other in order to represent the cooperation, communication and relationship needed between these opposing groups.
Since you’re here…
Our mission is to monitor Advertising to make certain that companies obey ethical standards of trustworthiness and transparency while communicating their commitment to addressing the great challenges of the New Millennium. From climate emergency to social inequality through all the issues included in the Sustainable Development Goals Agenda, we monitor the consistency of their statements, if they are ‘walking the talk’. With rising misinformation and commercial ownership, independent information is more and more rare. We think citizens deserve access to accurate analyses with integrity at their heart, so we can all make critical decisions about our lives, health and enviroment – based on fact, not fiction.
Our editorial independence means our content agenda is set only to voice our opinions, supported by in-depth research, free from any political and commercial bias, never influenced by interested owners or shareholders (which we don’t have). It means we can stand up to mainstream and give a voice to those less heard. We hope this will motivate you to make a contribution in support of our open, independent journalism. Every reader contribution, however big or small, is so valuable. Support BeIntelligent from as little as €5 – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
