The Impact Communications Programme is for females under 25 interested in discovering more about communicating cross sector innovation. It is a collaborative initiative operated in partnership with Menu B, designed to support UN Global Goal 5, to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
I was delighted to be the first to join the Impact Comms Programme.
Carlotta de Toni was the first to join the programme in 2018/19, before going on to finish her studies in the Netherlands. As well as traveling to events across Europe, one in Asia, and delivering a keynote for the magazine at a Global Goals event, Carlotta implemented her own ideas, including an Instagram journey through the SDGs and a magazine podcast. She also successfully completed the renowned Climate Reality Leadership training, after our Editor-at-large, Marc Buckley, encouraged her to apply.
Carlotta said: “The programme is designed to let young people discover more about the interconnections between sectors and the key role communication plays in accelerating progress and innovation.”
Beatriz Carrer is the current Impact Comms lead.
Beatriz is a fantastic new 2020 connection, who will cover cross sector events throughout this year, including the e-delivery expo in Barcelona this June. Beatriz will also take forward her own ideas, and share her insight on a range of topics on these pages.
The magazine founders support the Impact Comms Programme in a bid to offer young people who are passionate about communicating sustainable innovation a platform where they can make a real impact.
