4 Impact Streams ~ gather the team, skills & tools you need to thrive!

Each of the below Streams unites about 50 leaders in 7 collaborative innovation training sessions (75 min each) over the Summit – addressing pressing local issues while realizing the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to transform our world by 2030. See poster below for **SDGs advanced by each Stream.

By the end of day three, each Stream will identify three peer vetted outcomes to impact their community and world: an on the ground (business or initiative), Legal or policy proposal, and a technological solution to be prototyped by its leading champion along with a fresh support team in the post summit Hackathon (for implementation beyond).

Through the lens of a Post-Carbon future, in three days of bridge-building and interactive solution sessions, we’ll unite genius, energy and action to move your work and our movement forward around:

THRIVING CITIES:  Regenerative design from underground to the playground

  • With over 60% of humanity destined for the metropolis, what will it take for humanity to thrive? What is the role of art & culture?  Following the pace-setting example of urban landscapes in Japan and the communities in transition across the region, we’ll explore leading edge innovations, and how it’s ancient culture has integrated energy, waste, water and the built environment to create meaningful work and play.  **SDGs 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 9, 12, 13.

FEMINOMICS: How we all win by investing in women 

  • Co-create economics that work for all – from Micro Finance to Fortune500s.  Explore how the intersection of women’s leadership, feminine values, legal systems, new business models and high impact investing can drive a more inclusive and circular economy.  Connect and share practices, technology and tools to move us toward a just and flourishing world.  **SDGs 1, 8, 15, 16

LIVING WELL: Evolving Food, Health & Lifestyles

  • What does it take to live well? What does it take to be healthy? Health of our own bodies & minds deeply impacts and is impacted by the health of those around us, the plants and animals, the health of society, and our connection to god. How might we combine ancient methods and new technology to creating a culture that invests in and supports a holistic way of being and living – in body, mind and spirit. From sourcing real food to cultivating vitality to empowered living**SDGs 2, 3, 6, 12

EDUCATION FOR ALL: Lifelong. Equitable. Inclusive.

  • How might educational systems create a more equitable future?  We’ll explore ways innovation in learning can work to level the playing field and drive opportunities in a new economy. From school, to the workplace to the community kitchen, find out and create how new formal and informal education models, tools & technologies to increase unlock human potential, ignite purpose and deepen daily joy.  **SDGs 1, 4, 5, 10

How it WORKS:

Using 7 Stages to Sustainability (7SS) as a framework for action, cross-sector delegates unite, exchange breakthrough technologies, and mutually advance – tangible, immediate – and – longer-term, critical mass – solutions.

How can WE be greater than the sum of our parts?

Be a part of this year’s powerful initiative and discussions!

17 Goals to Transform Our World

On 25 September 2015, the 193 countries of the UN General Assembly adopted the 2030 Development Agenda titled “Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”.

In addition to specific **SGDs advanced in above streams, Goal #1 (No Poverty) and #8 (Decent Work/ Economic Growth) are cross-cutting goals, addressed by 7 Stages to Sustainability innovation cycle training & road map supporting cross-sector, interdisciplinary collaboration. #17 is advanced by the Summit program and in the post Summit Impact 365 local SDGs challenge, which distributes local action tools globally.
