Catalysing Change Week | 1–5 May 2023
Solutions from the Frontlines
Catalyst 2030 Local Chapter Initiatives
Catalysing Change Week allows participants to tap into the collective wisdom around systems change while forging partnerships across countries, regions and sectors.
Catalyst 2030 Local Chapters will initiate, lead and coordinate events and activities in their countries. However, only Catalyst 2030 members and Catalyst 2030 Awards finalists can host Catalyst 2030 Global Online Sessions. All sessions will be co-created with the membership and mostly organised by the hosts, with the help of the Secretariat.
When organising CCW2022, please be sure to:
Respect the national and local safety guidelines related to COVID-19
Prioritise digital interaction when in-person activities are not recommended
