17Goals Space in the court d'honneur

Do it for yourself and the environment

In the 17 colours of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the former overseas container stands out against the castle backdrop in the cour d'honneur and, with its signal colours, invites visitors to meet and playfully engage with the 17 goals. The so-called 17Goals Space will open its container door daily from 5 May to 5 June.

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations have served as a guideline for the Ludwigsburg Festival since the beginning of Jochen Sandig's directorship. Making these goals tangible in a playful way is a sensible addition made possible by Engagement Global's 17Goals Space. The former overseas container was transformed into an event and information space that uses playful elements to provide information about the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and offers suggestions on what each individual can do to achieve them.

From 5 May to 5 June, you can visit the 17Goals Space in the court d'honneur of the Ludwigsburg Festival. The team will be on hand all day to offer advice and support. If you not only want to inform yourself, but also have concrete ideas in the field of sustainable development, we would like to give you the opportunity to present your projects and initiatives. A slot of one hour is available for this purpose. During the week from 4 to 5 pm and on weekends from 3 to 4 pm.

You can also use the 17Goals Space to offer a workshop or just to create a meeting space. There are no limits to the format ideas, and we would be happy to discuss potential formats with you. If you are interested, please contact Dr Bettina Sluzalek:

You can look forward to these program items at 17Goals Space:
