Target Outcomes

  1. Definitively articulate competencies (skills, behaviors, attributes) sustainability practitioners need to successfully accelerate SDG outcomes globally and regionally.
  2. Connect over 100,000 sustainability practitioners and give them a voice and space to learn from each other.
  3. Make sustainability “doable” and “accessible” to everyone by telling stories of every-day sustainability practitioners.
  4. Contribute to the establishment of the global “sustainability” profession movement.

HOW THIS STUDY WILL ACCELERATE IMPACT​

As the global sustainability crisis accelerates, social, economic, and environmental disasters are increasingly devastating life across the globe.1 Despite over $350 billion in annual funding pouring into programs aimed at abating the calamity, only 3% of the UN’s SDGs have been achieved since they were set in 2015.2 Financing must increase, but money is not the root problem.

The world needs millions of competent, united, globally diverse, sustainability-minded advocates who have the energy, skills, experience, and network to accelerate positive change in local communities, in non-profit and for-profit organizations, and in government at all levels. This study will act as a catalyst to raising Sustainability Accelerator Advocates globally by achieving the following:

Accelerate development of sustainability practitioners around the world.

  • Align & enhance academic curriculum
  • Align & improve executive education
  • Install a globally recognized sustainability credential & pledge

Increase Global Awareness ​of Sustainability Heroes

  • Public Sector 
  • Not-for-profits & Foundations
  • Corporate & Investors
  • Every-day Individuals

  • Share best-practices between organizations
  • Create spaces for collaborative innovation

Provide Guidance for Sustainability-Oriented Organizational Systems​
