Rally Together for Global Action
As the world celebrates the United Nations 75th anniversary and comes together to discuss how to respond and rebuild from the COVID19 pandemic, leading social innovator EarthTech, is launching Together In Action to help bring people together and make progress towards the Global Goals. Wellness Wishes is proud to be a partner of this impactful program and help make a difference to people and planet.
Together in Action is a unique program designed to identify, support and scale top innovations that focus on addressing the 17 United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. It is a call out to social entrepreneurs across the world to submit their sustainable business ideas, and get connected with an influential network of judges, organisations, industry experts, and impact investors.
Co-Founder of EarthTech, Ant Moorhouse, says Together In Action will bring together the key players of the social enterprise ecosystem - the brightest innovators, leading organisations, impact investors and purpose-driven individuals to tackle existential threats, head on. This powerful combination of people and resources will accelerate cohesive action towards the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
Following their highly successful EarthTech Summit, held at Sir Richard Branson’s Australian Home - Makepeace Island in February, the EarthTech crew saw the incredible potential to make an even bigger difference globally.
“We had more than 855 team submissions from 73 countries register in our pilot program. The solutions are obviously out there, the ambition is high, and there is a collective pool of energy, knowledge and skills that needs to be harnessed. We knew the next time we did this, we also needed to gather influential organisations, professionals and investors to further the reach and impact,” Mr Moorhouse said.
Together in Action culminates in an online Global Impact Summit held on the 18th and 19th November 2020, and will explore key themes across two days. The first day is a public summit, showcasing inspiring thought leadership about the Global Goals, robust panel discussions, and exciting announcements of the social entrepreneur finalists. The second day will explore the emerging world of sustainable capital, social enterprise finance, and impact investment.
The TiA Impact Summit is being described as TEDx meets Burning Man - a cutting-edge and authentic online experience which will connect intelligent, driven, like-minded people from all over the world to affect real change.
