Marc created the Resilient SDG Manifesto which is a beautiful way to envision what desirable futures can look like in 2030 when we have achieved the goals. It is important to create a vision of the desirable futures so we can create, innovate, engineer, and manifest them by 2030. There is physiological importance to them, systemic ecological within planetary boundaries understanding to them as well as monetary investment needed for sustainable infrastructure, which is not clear to see and understand at first glance.

SDG Advisory Board

MaNaBu provides an alternative educational experience, where the highest deference is paid to the way children want to learn – through means that are fun, engaging, and above all promote a culture of agency and action among young people. Topics or issues that have immediate or ongoing real-world consequences often produce anxiety and worry in children. MaNaBu aims to limit this anxiety wherever possible and help children understand that they can change the world they live in for the better. Teaching kids about serious issues doesn’t have to be serious!

In order to educate first we must entertain.

MaNaBu’s biggest strength lies in its simplicity – fun is a universal language every child understands! Children from all over the world can enjoy an entertaining and language-less animated series (which comes in a short and flexible format easily adaptable to many media platforms and accessible to all audiences), as well as interactive games and fun, catchy songs and illustration books. While driving curiosity and empathy in children, MaNaBu also helps parents to promptly explain concerning current events, allowing both children and parents to become ambassadors and educators with regards to global issues.
