Industries and ecosystems worldwide have a pivotal role to play in delivering the UN Global Goals and stopping the climate juggernaut on course to destroy humanity. Innovators Magazine features news and insight on the cross sector pioneers and leaders making strides to accelerate the shift to a sustainable world for all. The good news is that by harnessing innovation, industries and businesses can, and are, transforming the world and tackling the #GlobalGoals. There are corporate initiatives like RE100, where big companies are committed to switching to 100% clean power; and Sierra Club’s Ready for 100 campaign in America, where cities are pledging to run entirely on renewables. Fashion For Good, based in Amsterdam, is working with famous brands, and supporting the most exciting startups and scale-ups, to fast track ideas and behaviours that can create a sustainable #futureoffashion. There are impact accelerators, like the one from WFP Innovation, backing early stage companies to #disrupthunger and overcome other global grand challenges. The Climate Reality Project is inspiring change across the world and empowering citizens with the knowledge to act, and teach others to act. This is the trend we need; but we need to speed it up, mainstream it, and trigger a new industrial revolution, one where every industry and ecosystem is on board, and investing everything in sustainable outcomes. Our news site, quarterly, podcasts, videos and event magazines, showcase the industries, ecosystems, and impact programmes offering the game changing solutions that can help avert the doomsday scenario. The aim is to inform and inspire innovators to go further. To do that we need to go further; and through Impact Innovators, produced in collaboration with Knowledge4Innovation, we lead cross sector events and initiatives that connect and accelerate impact for good; with research carried out by Innovators forming the basis of many of these connector events. Innovators Magazine: the story so far… Vision Established in 2015, the year the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted, Innovators Magazine aims to inspire cross-sector, cross-society action that can help solve the world’s biggest challenges.
