Welcome to the world’s most ambitious plan.
Catalyst 2030 is a global movement of social entrepreneurs and other social change innovators collaborating to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Catalyst 2030 believes that collective action and bold, new strategies are needed to address the crises of our time. Joining forces with communities, government, funders, business and others, we are working toward changing systems at all levels. A systems change approach is crucial for both acceleration and sustainability and to enable and scale solutions to achieve the SDGs. Cumulatively, movement members have already impacted the lives of millions, often with limited resources. Working together, our vision is the realisation of SDGs for all.
We live in a unique era of human progress. Extreme poverty, malnutrition, violence, infectious disease and unsafe water have plummeted, while life expectancy, literacy rates, and electricity access have soared. Yet, severe inequalities in income, health, education, lack of access to resources and human rights’ violations disadvantage billions around the world.
Humanity’s growing ecological footprint is threatening many of the earths’ systems we all depend on—such as climate, oceans, land, biodiversity, and fresh water—which are nearing irreversible tipping points. These crises often intersect, creating conditions ripe for instability and conflict. We may be the last generation alive that can act to reverse these trends.
It’s early days still. We’re in the planning phase, while pursuing a few early opportunities that have emerged from within the movement. The Catalyst 2030 website is a work-in-progress and will be regularly updated.
