Industries – citizens – governments – and academics must collaborate better if we are to have any chance of overcoming the long list of global grand challenges that threaten the future of humanity.

Innovators Magazine, a onepoint5media publication, was established in 2015, the year the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted, and aims to inspire cross-sector, cross-society action that can help solve the world’s biggest challenges. We showcase and connect cross-sector pioneers passionate about impacting the UN Global Goals. We want to inspire collaboration between ecosystems – and help develop mindsets – that lead to an increase in actions dedicated to delivering the #GlobalGoals and beyond.

Our news site features information on events and initiatives you can get involved with, as well as stories, expert insight and podcasts on the industries transforming our world – tailored to engage stakeholders and the general public with the defining issues of our time, such as the climate crisis, rising hunger levels, and poverty. We produce event editions, commissioned by partners who want to share their messages with the audiences that attend the major global events we media partner with. We also produce a quarterly, created in collaboration with Knowledge4Innovation; and organise events in Europe, and worldwide, to bring people and ideas together – all with the goal of inspiring actions that tackle global grand challenges.

The UN Global Goals, labelled the ‘blueprint for a better future’, are something we are passionate about promoting and using as a unifying vision that can bring everyone together in a bid to build a better world. To celebrate their importance, and encourage others to work for the Goals, we created the world’s first cross-sector and international #GlobalGoals awards, which was delivered in partnership with Newsquest Events in Glasgow in 2017 and 2018.
