SDG 15

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) include 17 interlinked global goals that are considered to be a call to action to protect the planet and its habitants to ensure peace and prosperity by 2030.  This project specifically focuses on SDG 15, Life on Land, with a hyperfocus on deforestation within the Amazon Rainforest and details the relationship between the cause of the issue, last impacts, protection and its restoration, as well as its promotion in achieving the SDG. Through a thorough investigation of existing information and studies, we strived to design and illustrate how human impact is a contributing cause to the ongoing deforestation rate and how this creates a ripple effect among other contributing factors.

About the Design

This poster was designed to display an in-depth system map of the cause of Amazonian deforestation, the lasting impacts, how to protect and restore the Amazon Rainforest, how to spread awareness on this ongoing issue of Amazonian deforestation, as well as a design intervention. Our group knew from the start that we wanted to incorporate the imagery of a tree into our final design, however, we also did not want our final design to look like all of our information was pushed into a form in which it does not fit. We strived to design a very organic and natural shape of a tree that did not feel forced. The final design of the system is inspired by the shape of the Kapok tree, a tree that is native to the Amazon Rainforest. The branches of the tree worked as a structure for our layout of the 4 main discussion topics (cause, impact, restoration, and promotion), and the trunk and its roots inspired the layout for our design intervention. A legend is utilized to show the different connections made throughout the system and show the reader where topics are discussed in multiple sections, therefore displaying the complexity of the system without overcrowding the delicate design of the system map.
