Catalysing Change Week

Catalysing Change Week (CCW) is the world’s largest event led by social innovators and entrepreneurs to share knowledge, exchange ideas and accelerate collaborative systems change during more than 250 sessions and activities in a dedicated annual week.

Organised by Catalyst 2030Catalysing Change Week 2022 built on the success of CCW2021, bringing together social entrepreneurs, representatives from the private sector, governments, funders and others involved in systems change, to inspire change in support of achieving the SDGs.

These models of best practice are in keeping with the recent findings of the Embracing Complexity and New Allies reports. The week served as an opportunity to engage, advocate and stimulate learning across the entire social entrepreneurship ecosystem. Learn more here.

Stakeholders will be encouraged to commit to taking action that advances practical policymaking. The “Getting from Crisis to Systems Change” report highlighted the need for world leaders to commit to systems change work and to give social entrepreneurs a seat at global decision-making tables. These findings will be streamlined into practical policy recommendations validated by in-field demonstrations of impact. We plan to share these findings at the G7 and G20 meetings.

In response to early indicators from the People’s Report, we will accelerate our efforts to achieve the SDGs by 2030. This will be achieved by securing commitments to drafting policy recommendations that can be adopted globally.
