Furthering UN Sustainable Development Goals within the USA

Client/ Funder: Bread for the World Institute
Location: USA

Thematic Area: Cross-Sector

Challenge

The U.S. SDGs Network is a multi-sectoral, multi-generational alliance working to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the USA. This network of networks brings together leaders from government, academic institutions, nonprofits, think tanks, funders, and the private sector. The group was looking to develop a more cohesive and strategic approach in their direction and operations.

Work

Catapult Design surveyed some of the current membership, conducted a workshop with key membership, and developed a simple website to house key messaging and group membership information. Our objectives were to: – Build on progress to date towards the SDGs in the USA through a clear understanding of who’s doing what and where. – Draft key messages from the group – Understand the group’s targeted influence in the space in order to move the SDGs forward and grow the network.

Results

Catapult Design built a simple digital platform for the U.S. SDGs Network with the flexibility to be build it out further over time based on future needs. Through targeted questions and workshop activities, Catapult initiated and facilitated critical conversations to hone in on the group’s strategic direction and expectations amongst its core members.
