Impact Hub Stockholm is determined to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. In order to realise them, we need to leverage the potential of entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, innovators, creatives and the whole of Stockholm alike to play a role in this global agenda. To hack the SDGs and identify the role that we can play in the solutions, we are launching our platform – #ExecuteChange: SDG Hack to be convened every Thursday at Impact Hub Stockholm from 14:00-17:00.
Back to all Events#ExecuteChange: SDG Hack incorporates three key concepts to foster innovative ideas and creative processes to create a platform for dialogue on sustainable innovations, solutions and lifestyles. The three concepts that the platform will be built around are: connect, inspire and enable.#Connect: Impact cannot happen in isolation. It requires collective action. We offer the space, the community, and the global platform to support social innovators and to attempt to discover solutions to the SDGs. We embody the proverb “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” #ExecuteChange: SDG Hack will actively promote and catalyse learning, sharing, new connections, and cross-disciplinary dialogue – all leading to collaborations.
#Inspire: We believe a spark of inspiration has the ability to change the world. Inspiration must occur to consciously create an atmosphere which encourages openness and sharing of different perspectives and concepts.
#Enable: Beyond simply appreciating new ideas, this focuses on the implementation of practical solutions. We leverage one another’s strengths and resources to gain the knowledge and energy we need to undertake meaningful and impactful projects.
The platform will be open to everyone, the greater the diversity of people and from different disciplines and areas of expertise, the more holistic our discussions and understanding can become. On Thursday 15th June we launched our platform to facilitate and understand what our role should be. The platform will be launched in full at the end of the summer. The first week (22/06/17) we will examine the first global goal: No Poverty. The second week (29/06/17) we will examine the second global goal: Zero Hunger, and so on and so forth.
