Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals
Globally we now connect over 77,000 changemakers across our online platforms to work together towards a more ethical and sustainable future. Across our platforms we create educational content to raise awareness of the Global Goals and how people & businesses can support them, and we champion good examples of this in practice.
In January 2019, over 1,200 Instagram posts were created as part of our #MeetTheChangemakerChallenge, which connected changemakers from around the world, showcased their story and shared their impact, to inspire others to take action for the Global Goals.
Every week we bring together the sustainability and impact community on Twitter for our weekly #EthicalHour Twitter chat, where the community shares knowledge, resources and inspiration to help each other make an impact towards the goals in their business, career and personal lives. The #EthicalHour hashtag is used 31 times per day on average, on Twitter alone , and has seen a 27% increase in usage in the first 6 months of 2022, vs the same period in 2021 (data source: Sprout Social).
During our 3 year impact partnership with B1G1, which is focused on embedding charitable giving aligned with the SDGs into business, we have introduced 12 other people to the B1G1 network. Our leveraged impacts (the impact of Ethical Hour and all the people we brought into the B1G1 community combined) have totalled 113,032 giving impacts for the SDGs (as of August 2022).
In 2019, our founder Sian Conway-Wood contributed a chapter to the international bestselling book ‘Legacy: The Sustainable Development Goals in Action‘, which empowers entrepreneurs and business owners to embody the spirit of giving, to adopt impactful strategies and to make a difference by focusing on the Sustainable Development Goals, with a foreword by sustainable business leader Paul Polman, former CEO of Unilever.
We prioritise collaboration over competition as one of our core values, and are dedicated to our mission of uniting the most impactful business community on the internet.
