Background and objectives
We are in need of a volunteer to help us design a puzzle with all the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) icons. This puzzle is directed to the construction of a storytelling dynamic for capacity development on SDGs, especially with civil society. The puzzle pieces will serve as a guide to discuss the localization of SDGs in a several particular contexts in Brazil. We want the public to visualize how the SDGs can be connected for solving development wicked problems. We want it to be physical, not digital nor online. The puzzle pieces must be from medium to large size, and permit the connection between the 17 SDGs and the 1 piece of the narrative. The deadlines are negotiable and we expect the duration of this project to be within a reasonable time-frame. We will provide possible design ideas. The volunteer will be responsible for proposing the puzzle material. Most of the communication will be via email or possibly skype and phone call, if needed. The selected UN Online Volunteer will receive due credit for their contributions.

UNDP Brazil - Sustainable Development Goals provides support to governments, civil society, private sector and other stakeholders to reflect the new global agenda in national development plans and policies. Supports countries to accelerate progress on SDG targets, and make the UN’s policy expertise on sustainable development and governance available to stakeholders at all stages of implementation. This task will help us enhance our efforts on mainstreaming the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in Brazil, by providing alternative and non-conventional methods for engaging stakeholders. Also will be used as tool for capacity development on integrating the SDGs for solving complex issues of sustainable development. We plan to use the puzzle on a series of workshops promoted by UNDP Brazil.
