SLUSHJOBS X SEVENTEEN
The Story of Seventeen
In the making of the Slush Jobs x Seventeen Project, we aimed to design a sweatshirt that would appeal to and represent every segment. We followed a production journey that reflects the meaning of sweatshirt by using the materials and colors that are the least harmful to nature, which we produce in a sustainable way. Without exception, our first goal has always been to show the power of street style, fashion and how it can be one of our strongest assistants on the path to change.
The Sustainable Development Goals, also known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to eradicate poverty, protect our planet and ensure that all people live in peace and prosperity. These 17 Goals build on the achievements of the Millennium Development Goals; on the other hand, it includes new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals are interrelated; The key to success in any cause is to tackle problems that have common aspects together. (UNDP)
Although the Sustainable Development Goals aim to improve life for future generations, we took action when we realized that an eye from the outside world did not attract attention and did not have information about the process. We have designed a sweatshirt that attracts the attention of the younger generation and wants to be involved in change and integrate these goals into their daily lives. While explaining the goals with an inclusive agenda, we also preferred a design that shows how intertwined and harmonious the goals are. While her seventeen articles represent 17 goals, it also symbolizes one of Selin's biggest dreams, raising a more aware generation by integrating activism into our daily lives, reaching this project at the age of 17.
Our motto is that we will not leave anyone behind, as our motto is the slogan used by the United Nations when publishing these goals.
