The 2015 Week of Action launched in the Luxembourg Permanent Representation to the EU with a photography exhibition consisting of the 17 photos, each representing the importance of girls’ equal participation in the context of each of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The exhibition was subsequently displayed in the Belgian parliament and during the 2016 European Development Days. It was also featured in The Guardian and has been shared over 19,000 times.

The exhibiton is accompanied by an exhibition guide. It outlines how the goals can transform girls’ lives and why girls must be included equally in order for the goals to be achieved, as well as the relevant interlinkages between the goals. The guide concludes with specific recommendations to the European Union and its Member States.
