HubClub: International Development: Scaling to the SDGs
Scaling-up solutions for the SDGs
Large-scale challenges require large-scale solutions. Initiatives that cut through sectors, stakeholders and systems and integrate the transformative potential of actors across the spectrum are needed to tackle “the world’s to-do list for the next 15 years”.
In the words of our guest speaker Paul Chatterton, Founder of the WWF Landscape Finance Lab, “The challenge is to integrate our view and resources so that we can begin to work towards long-term solutions and approaches. We need to think in landscapes, ecosystems and systems approaches, and start merging our efforts together”.
In the third International Development Hub Club, we will harness the collective wisdom of our community to discuss, explore and generate concrete ideas for creating cross-sector collaboration for impact.
During this workshop-style Hub Club, you’re invited to work with your peers and dream big: how could you join forces to achieve large-scale change? To start you off, our special guests will present their approaches to scaling impact, and will give you food for thought with some concrete challenges.
