Enactus Takes On

The 2030 Global GoalS For Sustainable Development

World leaders have announced 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. In all countries. For all people. The Goals are bold: end poverty, fight inequality and tack climate change by 2030. If we are going to transform the world by 2030, we need a new approach. 

The Global Goals serve as a framework for the sustainable change we’ve been creating for years. At Enactus, we’ve found an approach that works. One that creates sustainable, lasting change. Entrepreneurial Action, business Innovation that creates social impact.

We are already taking entrepreneurial action to create a better world for us all. But we’ve got more work to do.

Together, we can achieve the Global Goals. 


THE GLOBAL GOALS ACCELERATOR

We are excited to announce we have recently partnered with Unilever to launch a brand new initiative: The Global Goals Accelerator.

Two of Unilever’s brand teams, Domestos and Lifebuoy, will each invest up to £25,000 (a maximum of £5k or £2.5k per project) in Enactus projects that contribute and align to the Global Goals and their individual brand objectives to support this. 

The focus of the inaugural Global Goals Accelerator event will be on goal number 6- Clean Water and Sanitation. In June, Enactus project teams will be invited to ‘pitch’ their ideas to key brand leaders at Unilever’s Innovation Hub in London. 

 

Unilever are looking for projects that support their brand objectives:

  • The Domestos Social Mission: To help everyone, everywhere have a clean and safe toilet. Domestos and Unilever have committed to improving access to a toilet for 25 million people by 2020.
  • The Lifebuoy Social Mission: Lifebuoy’s vision is to bring health and hygiene to people through their ‘help a child reach 5’ programme. By 2020, the Lifebuoy brand aims to change the hygiene behaviour of one billion consumers.
