Catalyzing Change Week (CCW) is the world’s largest event led by social innovators and entrepreneurs to share knowledge, exchange ideas, and accelerate collaborative systems change during more than 250 sessions and activities in a dedicated annual week.
Organized by Catalyst 2030, Catalysing Change Week 2022 built on the success of CCW2021, bringing together social entrepreneurs, representatives from the private sector, governments, funders and others involved in systems change, to inspire change in support of achieving the SDGs.
These models of best practice are in keeping with the recent findings of the Embracing Complexity and New Allies reports. The week served as an opportunity to engage, advocate and stimulate learning across the entire social entrepreneurship ecosystem.
