The “SDGs Superheroes” program, spearheaded by Artivo Education Sdn.Bhd. (“ARTIVO”) in collaboration with Universiti Sains Malaysia, is an innovative and engaging initiative designed to educate children about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs). The program aims to inspire young minds, empowering them to become superheroes for a sustainable future.
At the core of the program is the comic book “Game On: How to be a Super Hero and Save the world through SDGs,” published by ARTIVO in July 2021. This captivating comic book serves as an educational tool, introducing children to the SDGs in an accessible and exciting format. Through immersive storytelling, vibrant illustrations, and relatable characters, children are taken on an adventure that spans the globe, learning about the 17SDGs and their significance.
The “SDGs Superheroes” program goes beyond mere knowledge dissemination; it actively encourages children to participate and make a difference. Each child is tasked with a mission to share their newfound SDG knowledge with at least 20 people, fostering awareness and inspiring action.
To ensure widespread distribution, 10,000 copies of the comic book have been published. These books will be strategically placed at “transformation stations” in Malaysia and Internationally. The comic can be accessed online via web-portal and bookstores. It is expected to create impact for over 100,000 children.
