Analysis: How Collaborations with Social Entrepreneurs Are Helping to Make the SDGs a Reality

By Kristine Pearson, Colin McElwee

While the COVID-19 pandemic has upended many of society’s norms, it has also delivered some unexpected benefits. The way in which social innovators work with communities, governments, funders and each other has undergone a rapid paradigm shift, with results that might not have been achievable in the same timescale at any other period in our history.This shift has been facilitated by Catalyst 2030, a global movement of social entrepreneurs and social innovators from all sectors who share the common goal of creating innovative, collaborative, and action-orientated approaches to accelerate the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. This movement of more than 600 member institutions and 900 individuals covering all 17 SDGs and working in more than 190 countries launched at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos 2020.
