Monumental Reimagining

Goal 16 - Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions

Design a new monument that tells a story about the identity, values, and history of your community

What is this challenge?

Throughout history and across cultures, monuments have been designed to express cultural identity and societal values, and tell stories to future generations. After exploring some of the world’s most fascinating examples, you will learn about the controversy around the Henry Dundas monument in Edinburgh, and have the opportunity to take part in a virtual debate on the subject. Finally, you will design a monument that reveals a previously untold story about the identity, values, or history of your own local community.
