Facilitating change for positive impact and sustainable economies by developing the next generations of 'new economy' stakeholders and change-makers.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) represent the needs for social & environmental sustainability, but also the opportunities to create a valuable New Economy globally.
However, a more sustainable global economy requires redirection of resources and demand is shifting for Human Capital re the skills, knowledge & attitudes (SKAs) needed. Generations of new change-makers are required to drive social & environmental sustainability but they need access to opportunities and an efficient & effective means of gaining the SKAs relevant to the New Economy.
Human ingenuity, exploration, connectivity & collaboration are keys to solving the world’s ‘wicked’ problems. Just as important are mechanisms to provide the SKAs to the masses of stakeholders to enable the new economy. Impact Planet is developing an ecosystem to address the 'Future of Work' challenges & opportunities.
"When private sector, government, social, and philanthropic leaders apply innovative partnerships and technologies to address social challenges and build sustainable communities, the impact is multiplied."
Impact Planet has in ingrained philosophy of partnering and collaborating for impact.
