Buddy System

What is the Buddy System?

The Buddy System helps to integrate Catalyst 2030 values in peer connections to strengthen the community. This system fosters a unique relationship between two Catalyst members, in which they share their experience, provide inspiration and encouragement, helping each other find a way to achieve objectives inside Catalyst 2030, and facilitates access to resources that may be helpful.

The Buddy System focuses on personal bonding between members.The conversations are a space to ignite curiosity and reflection where members can grow to understand each other and further learnings and collaborations.

Although it can be structured, this is a flexible and dynamic process where both members actively contribute to the relationship, building its strength and character.
