More about Partnering for Change: Social Innovation to Reach Agenda 2030

As the urgency to meet our common SDG goals by 2030 intensifies, social innovators have an important role to play. The solutions they offer help us tackle our shared challenges in more effective and systemic ways. And the work of hundreds of local social innovators turns into a catalytic global force. But they cannot do it alone. In order to flourish and scale, they need a nurturing ecosystem and cross-sector support.

Partnering for Change: Social Innovation to Reach Agenda 2030 will focus on concrete examples and insights on how we together can accelerate the potential of social innovation to create a more equal and sustainable tomorrow. We have invited some of the most prominent social entrepreneurs in the world, business leaders, decision makers and experts to share their perspectives on challenges and opportunities for local social innovators, both globally and in the Nordics.
