Hello Sustainable Malmo 2018 was deployed in the coastal area of the city. The project was designed to disseminate information to citizens around the UN's Global Goals. This was achieved by encouraging people to interact with the Hello Lamp Post platform to voice their opinions or to challenge their awareness of how their city supports the vision of the UN.
To discover and gather citizen perspectives around sustainability initiatives, to inform future policy. This included topics around:
How to protect the sea's ecosystem
Improvements to education
What citizens can do to responsibly consume
How to reduce the effects of climate change
This was a follow up project to 2017 and delivered an increase in engagement of over 75%.
The city was able to engage with citizens on a mass scale, where local leaders were able to identify barriers to sustainable living, knowledge gaps around the UN's Sustainable Development Goals and encouraged behaviour changes amongst citizens.
The installation provided an opportunity for citizens to be consulted on community initiatives, public policy and the local role of the citizen and the city in tackling global issues.
