A Global Movement for Collaboration
Catalyst 2030 is a fast-growing global movement of people and organisations committed to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS) by 2030.
Launched at the World Economic Forum in Davos in January 2020, Catalyst 2030 is a social entrepreneur and innovator-led movement responding to this global call to action for people and planet.
The movement was co-founded by a diverse group of social entrepreneurs, many as members of our ecosystem partners: Ashoka, Echoing Green, the Schwab Foundation of the World Economic Forum and the Skoll Foundation. In 2019, this global group came together to forge what would become Catalyst 2030.
Alongside communities, governments, businesses, funders and others, we are forming inclusive and locally led collaborations, creating connections across borders and cultures.
Together, we are implementing bold new strategies and sustainable solutions to achieve a for all.
A Call to Collaborate
We have a greater chance of achieving the 17 Global Goals outlined in the SDGs when we collaborate to confront the world’s most pressing problems. By working together, we are able to share ideas, improve access to information, deploy resources more effectively and develop inclusive solutions that improve the quality of people’s lives.
Since 2020, we have witnessed a rising tide of committed people and organisations coming together to collaborate in deep and meaningful ways. We invite you to collaborate with us and join our growing community.
Catalyst 2030 members are driven by the desire to make a positive impact on the world and to find lasting solutions to unsolved challenges. Our members have a proven track record of systems change approaches and our work complementing and often partnering with the large scale perspectives of governments.
More than 50% of our members have implemented programmes on the country level and nearly 30% of organisations have succeeded in driving the passage of new government policies.
