Functionality and Wellbeing

The Elders launched “fairness films” to support UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Martti Ahtisaari, Former President of Finland and Nobel Peace Laureate, selected the Finnish Maternity Box to symbolise his view of fairness. The box is given by the state to every expecting mother who attends a health care check before the 4th pregnancy month. The Elders are independent leaders using their collective experience and influence for peace, justice and human rights worldwide. The group was founded by Nelson Mandela in 2007.
