The Cartooning Global Forum

The Cartooning Global Forum is a proposition, during an annual meeting, to facilitate the meeting and exchange around the active role of cartooning in society. Multiple actors are then unveiled during a day of production of recommendations integrated into the SDG2030.

These Sustainable Development Goals invite governments to invest in strong initiatives aimed at improving the lives of their inhabitants and their relationship to the planet, particularly with regard to the societal dimension.

This annual working day follows the first reflections held in March 2017 at UNESCO during the panel “The issue of cartooning and its future”, supported by the Permanent Delegations of France and Switzerland to UNESCO and organized by the agency Si, as part of the exhibition event  “The press in Liberty”.
