Catalyst 2030 – A Global Movement of Social Change Innovators

Catalyst 2030 is a global movement of over 1,600 social entrepreneurs and social impact actors from Ashoka, Echoing Green, the Schwab Foundation, the Skoll Foundation and other global networks of social entrepreneurs. The movement was founded in response to research carried out by the Social Progress Imperative which showed that, at the current pace of progress, the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) would only be achieved in 2074. Catalyst 2030 members believe that with collaboration this pace can be greatly accelerated, and that by joining forces, greater impact can be achieved in a shorter time scale.

In brief, the movement is operating on every level: local, national, regional and global. It aims to strengthen collaboration across and between civil society, multilateral organisations, social entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs, impact investors and governments. The goal is to scale up already existing, proven, successful solutions for systemic change and thereby accelerate the impact that will help us reach the SDGs by 2030. Catalyst 2030 offers the Intern the opportunity to work with young people from various countries, and to challenge themselves within the context of a vibrant and growing organisation. The ideal candidate is a masters student or currently graduated with a background in international relations / affairs, international law, international development, social sciences or similar.

The Catalyst 2030 Membership Team is responsible for building and maintaining the movement, identifying potential members for Catalyst and facilitating their active participation. We are focused on streamlining the membership process and onboarding new members and on shifting consciousness to embody C2030’s values in the community.
