At Catalysing Change Week 2021, we will unite experts, social innovators, and representatives from the private sector and governments to showcase, listen to and come to understand one another. We will also raise awareness of the outstanding practices in the field, and their potential to bring about change.
Catalysing Change Week is organised by Catalyst 2030.
Catalysing Change Week is an annual event over which we intensify our activities by bringing together our key stakeholders. Social entrepreneurs, representatives from the private sector, funders, and other agencies involved in systems change gather to showcase their work and the best practices that can accelerate our work in pursuit of the SDGs. It is a collective effort to highlight issues of common concern and to advance practices of collaborative systems change. The Week serves as an opportunity to engage, to advocate and to stimulate learning across our entire ecosystem.
