The People’s Report

How do we solve the world’s problems and change the trajectory on the SDGs? We have to listen to the people’s reality and shape government policies based on that. Read the People’s Report data collected during our recent survey on the daily reality of people from all over the world since the COVID-19 pandemic.

The need for collaboration

Catalyst 2030 members are driven by a passionate determination to ensure that the SDGs are met by 2030 thereby avoiding the devastating 50-year delay predicted in the Social Progress Index.

Our members envision achieving this through mobilisation of social entrepreneurs, partners and resources. By working together, our aim is to ensure all 17 goals are addressed as part of an interrelated, bigger picture and not in isolation.

People and nature at the centre

In everything we do, we place people, nature and their ways of life at the heart of what we do. We stand accountable to them for our actions.

Co-creative mindset

The future of innovation is co-creation. We seek to acknowledge our own biases and silos and work to move beyond them . This includes sharing all relevant data when we collaborate and that whatever Catalyst 2030 produces is non-proprietary.

Collaborative leadership

We prioritise co-creating approaches that reflect shared ownership and credit collective impact. Shared norms are based on the needs and challenges we face.

Spirit of generosity

On any given day we are all donors, doers, visionaries or clients. We commit to sharing our knowledge, time and networks freely without expectation of receiving anything in return, other than the achievement of collective goals.

Being part of Catalyst 2030 has allowed TackleAfrica to connect with a variety of social entrepreneurs and enterprises, learn more about what people are doing to address the SDGs and also begin creating relationships which we hope will accelerate our impact in an efficient and collborative way.

Listening to how different social entrepreneurs approached challenges expanded my horizon and allowed me to shift my perspective and change my mindset from thinking narrow to a more birds eye view.

I’m inspired by the possibility of what we can achieve together, as a team of expert go-getters, for people and nature, for the SDGs.
