Cartooning Global Forum
2018 recommendations

Based on the work session held at UNESCO, Paris, october 3rd, 2018,
here participants included 81 individuals, from 30 countries,
representing 33 organisations and associations, 8 institutions and universities,
10 newspaper, publishers and companies

During the first Cartooning Global Forum, convened on October 3rd 2018 at UNESCO, Paris all attending participants entered into an exchange on the following topics and concluded their debate with the subsequent recommendations.  Within the context of the 2030 SDGs, we commit to promote these recommendations and invite institutions, leaders, associations and NGOs to factor them in to the development of projects in these areas:


SDG 4 – Quality Education

SDG 5 – Gender Equality


SDG 10 – Reduced Inequalities


SDG 16 – Peace, Justice and strong institutions



These were the main themes of 2018’s forum. At each subsequent session our intent will be to take stock of the past year, extend the work based upon the prior recommendations, explore and develop them, detail methods of application, demonstrate their positive effects in society and promote peace, justice and equality.
