Watch: Spice Girls 'Wannabe' video remade for latest Project Everyone initiative

Project Everyone has used the 20th anniversary of the hit Spice Girls single 'Wannabe' to raise awareness of various women's issues including access to education, child marriage and the fight for equal pay.

Working together with its partner Getty Images and the global cinema advertising association SAWA, Project Everyone has released a video entitled 'What I Really Really Want'.

Directed by MJ Delaney and produced by Moxie Pictures, the video features artists from India, Nigeria, South Africa, the UK, the US and Canada. 

As part of the campaign, photos shared on social media using the hashtag #WhatIReallyReallyWant will be collated and presented to world leaders at the UN General Assembly in September.  

The project was founded by filmmaker and campaigner Richard Curtis together with business leader Gail Gallie and Kate Garvey, who was former aide to Tony Blair.

The aim is to popularise the Global Goals for Sustainable Development that were agreed by 193 world leaders at the UN General Assembly in September 2015. These include plans to end poverty, address climate change and inequalities over the next 15 years.
