In case you missed it, here is a recording of the Catalyst 2030 session during the 2020 Virtual Skoll World Forum Week.
Session Description: According to the Social Progress Index, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will not be achieved until 2094—64 years after the deadline set by the UN. The effects of this delay will be devastating for billions and lead to irreversible environmental damage. Acceleration of progress is urgently needed. In comes Catalyst 2030.
Catalyst 2030 is a global collaborative multi-stakeholder movement initiated by leading social entrepreneurs from Ashoka, Echoing Green, Schwab, Skoll and others from some of the most prestigious global networks of social innovators. The group is inclusive and rapidly expanding to include governments, funders, bilaterals, multilaterals, and other intermediaries from across the globe.
Catalyst 2030 members have come together to accelerate progress towards the SDGs by radically transforming the social sector to adopt systems change approaches and by propelling systems change at a country level. Together, the aim is to drive a significant dent in the climate crisis, the reduction of poverty and to leave a lasting and positive impact on the lives of many millions of people.
