Amplify. Accelerate. Action.

Guidelines for CCW2022 Sessions/Events

Who can propose and host sessions/events?

Catalyst 2030 members, Catalyst 2030 Awards winners and finalists may propose and host sessions and events during CCW2022. Engage with other Catalyst 2030 members to co-create sessions and submit the proposed sessions on behalf of the collaboration. Members may plan in person activities at a local level as well as hybrid events in their country and region in collaboration with other Catalyst 2030 members.

It’s important to note that sessions co-created by multiple Catalyst 2030 members tend to be accepted rather than individual proposals.

When will sessions/events for CCW2022 take place?

Online, offline and hybrid sessions and events will take place throughout CCW2022 during 9-13 May 2022.

When organising CCW2022 events and activities it is important to always:

  • Respect national and local safety guidelines related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Prioritise online interaction if local health authorities have discouraged in person activities.

What types of sessions/events can you host during CCW2022?

See the following inspiring ideas of possible formats for CCW2022 sessions and events:

Storytelling Sessions

Social innovators share their stories and initiate partnerships.

Policy Roundtable Discussions

Social innovators and funders co-create recommendations for systems change that can help scale issue-based solutions.

Fireside Chats / Celebration Sessions

Challenges and solutions proposed will be highlighted and raised with the relevant policymakers and leaders, focusing on how solutions can be jointly co-created.


Using a film screening to start dialogue and debate that leads to action.

Closed Door Salons

Closed, unlisted conversations with a small, selected audience, tentatively including dialogue with donors.

Problem-Solving Sessions / Thematic Workshops

Hosting workshops to ideate big thinking and collaborative problem-solving with our global community of innovators.


Designed as a sprint-like event, a good idea for problem-solving sessions.

Mindfulness and Active Breaks

Host 15-minute mindfulness and wellbeing sessions throughout each day, to serve as a break from the programme.
