The ELYX Foundation – to make the 2030 Agenda a reality
The ELYX Foundation, under the aegis of the FACE Foundation, which is recognized as a public utility, was created in September 2018. The Foundation aims to create and disseminate the narrative of positive transitions whether they are ecological, social, cultural or technological. Thus, the Foundation accompanies public and/or private entities that wish to move from the era of Sustainable Development to that of Regeneration.
ELYX is currently the first and only digital ambassador of the United Nations. The foundation promotes the values of the United Nations and the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda.
As such, the ELYX Foundation has created the 10TOGO program, which deciphers the issues at stake in each international summit and shows how the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide solutions. Each chapter of the 10TOGO program offers perennial content, in open source, in digital form, posters, leaflets, video animations and school books, and a communication campaign.
