For Sustainable Development

Art can be a powerful agent for change. Nordi Art is proud to work with the UN Global Goals. Where we in support of a shared vision, can create a more sustainable future.

Nordi Art has chosen to focus on the UN Global Goals. We do this by informing the business community about the UN Global Goals through relevant and present stories illustrated by photography by renowned photographers. The project is 17 global goals illustrated in pictures that have a strong storytelling and shows both challenges and solutions from developing and emerging countries all over the world. The purpose of Nordi Arts’ 17 selected works is to focus on the role of the business community in solving the global challenges that are addressed in the 17 global goals.


Visualize how you work with the Global Goals

Although sustainability and global development have been on the agenda in the Danish business community for many years, the UN Global Goals has increased the focus placed on the strategic role of companies, in solving the challenges.

At Nordi Art, companies can decorate meeting rooms, receptions and offices with original limited edition photo art. It can help express your company’s CSR policy and visualize your work with the UN Global Goals. 15-50% of the profits goes directly to a charity that is related to the global goal addressed in the artwork.

Each artwork is marked with a discreet QR code, which links to a page with the work’s history, the world goal it is related to, and the charity it supports. The QR code can be tailored to the company and can be used to bring attention to the companies work with the Global Goals as well as to create conversation about responsibilities and efforts.

DINNødhjælp’s orphanage is a home to children accused of witchery. All of the children at the orphanage go to school as education is seen as being critical for their future development. The safe surroundings of school is also a way for the children to process a history of failure, violence and threats. Besides taking them too school, DINNødhjælp are working with the children every day with activities such as singing, dancing, playing and being creative. DINNødhjælp is a charitable organization founded in 2012 by volunteers, as a result there is no management to reward financially. Therefore, all fundraising and donations are contributed 100% to the projects. DINNødhjælp works compassionately and their main purpose is to support the world’s poorest and witchcraft accused children to a more dignified life.

We are a voluntary association that are fighting for children’s rights. Our primary purpose is saving the so-called witch children in Nigeria, where the belief in witches is a big problem. At the same time as we give the rescued children a good future, we fight against the superstition, so we in the future can prevent more children being tortured, and at worst killed.

In Central Africa there is a great lack of education – particularly for refugees, street children and former child soldiers. Oxfam IBIS works with setting up schools, training teachers and supporting the building of a school system. Education gives traumatized children an anchor in life and the opportunity to prepare for a better future despite great uncertainty.

In order to rebuild a society after conflicts, there is a need for educated citizens, who can read, write and calculate, and understand their role as democratic citizens.

Education is a human right, and education can not wait for peace. Today 125 million children do not get any formal education at all. This education crisis undermines any chance of rapid progress in human development. The power of people against poverty

Every year, 200 Danish children are diagnosed with cancer. Cancer is the most frequent medical cause of death of children older than 1 year. Today, four out of five Danish children survive cancer, but half of the survivors suffer from long term injuries from the disease and the severe treatment. The Danish Child Cancer Foundation is the one organization, who funds most Danish research in childhood cancer, and we dot it in order to enhance the treatment and care of children with cancer and thus the survival rates. And the effort pays off: Since the formation of The Danish Child Cancer Foundation in 1995, the overall survival rate of children with cancer has increased with almost 20 pct.

The Danish Child Cancer Foundation is a private, independent organization. We support research in childhood cancer and work to enhance the conditions and care of children with cancer and their families during the course of the disease.

In its first phase, FMA is focused on youths that have been imprisoned in Pademba prison. These minors want to return to normal society; some dream of studying, others want to find work even if their opportunities are scarce in one of the world’s poorest nations. The majority come from broken families that left their home or are orphans.

What we do

  • Offer help directly to incarcerated minors in Pademba prison and in juvenile prison.
  • During court, monitor the trials of minors coming from maximum-security Pademba Prison.
  • Offer legal assistance to incarcerated minors that arrive in court with serious allegations.
  • Pay the bail of youths incarcerated for minor offences. Many times, a bail of less than 50 Euros can avoid years of jail time.
  • Rehabilitation. We personalize the social reinsertion process for minors freed from jail. This can occur through the Saint Michael Center or through occupational therapy in auto mechanic workshops, sewing workshops, etc.
  • Provide a teacher to the juvenile prison. Work on this project has already begun in the Approved School of Freetown.

Sex & Samfund has been working in Kenya since 2011, focusing on family planning, sustainability and LGBT rights and health. Despite economic growth and good trading opportunities, the country suffers from great poverty, inequality, climate change and a problematic relationship with LGBT rights.

Population pressure combined with environmental challenges due to climate change makes it difficult to create sustainable development in Kenya. In a project at Lake Victoria, Sex & Society works with local partners for an integrated effort that includes family planning and sustainable farming practices.

Play31 works in Sierra Leone, one of the world’s poorest countries, which was ravaged by a brutal civil war and has recently been through a devastating ebola epidemic. Like the civil war, the ebola has divided rural communities and degraded the trust that is needed to make every community work and thrive. The lack of trust is also a result of poor governance and corruption. In particular, women and children suffer from lack of basic rights such as protection from violence and access to health facilities and education.

Play 31 uses football to unite and develop societies, divided by war, conflict and disasters.

Anima is a Danish animal welfare association, founded in 2000. We work for animals to be respected, not to be maltreated. This applies regardless of whether it is about pets, farm animals, fur animals, experimental animals or animals in entertainment.

Anima sets in where there is a need and we work targeted to achieve concrete results for the animals. We focus on influencing both politicians, businesses and consumers. Animas most important task is to be a voice for the animals as they can not speak for themselves.

Denmark’s active association for animal rights, for a world without animal abuse.

Dansk Flygtningehjælp (Dfh) works on the basis of humanitarian principles and human rights with all aspects of the refugee case, with the overall goal of helping to create lasting solutions for refugees and internally displaced persons. Dfh understands lasting solutions like any action that can help create a permanent and tolerable solution so that the people they work with can live a normal life. As a Danish organization, they work for the Danish society to assume responsibility for the world’s refugees – both in the world’s focal points and at home. No refugee must miss help to find protection and lasting solutions.


Tax write-off

The purchase of artworks that are hung or placed at a company’s premises can be deducted in tax. If the purchase price is 13,200 DKK (2017) or less per artwork, the company can deduct the entire amount from the year in which the artwork is purchased. If the amount exceeds 13,200 DKK (2017), the amount can be depreciated according to the so-called balance method by up to 25% per year, i.e. according to the same rules as inventory. Full depreciation can be made in the acquisition year, even if the purchase is made at the end of the financial year.
The advantageous tax rules apply to original visual artworks and also include graphics and photographic artworks. In the case of graphic and photographic artworks, it is a separate requirement that they are numbered and signed by the artist and that they are manufactured in a limited edition. Reproductions are therefore not covered by the rules. Therefore, artworks purchased through Nordi are covered by the favorable tax rules.
