This page is just for SotG team members and potential new allies as it contains various concepts we are exploring, rather than concrete plans.
One possibility we see is to move into the space of Sustainability Coaching as a way to open the door for our Impact Coaching, simply because Creative Impact is a bit too forward thinking for the average person in many societies at this moment in time, whereas Sustainability is on everyone’s mind.
So one possible path could be to:
1) Start the CEO4Climate initiative in a new country
2) Use the connections we make there to open the door for Sustainability Week for Businesses or other types of Sustainability Coaching
3) Once we are in the process of solidifying a proposal for Sustainability Coaching, we open the conversation about our Impact offerings
#2 and #1 could swap if:
a) we have trouble getting momentum on #1, so we need to build up our credentials first
b) we simply don’t have a team in place for #1 but we do for #2
The other thing we will need to explore is if it is important to start with Sustainability Weeks for Universities(and maybe schools) before we start offering it to businesses.
We also could theoretically engage university students to go out into their communities to gather signatures from local business owners for the CEO4Climate petition. In the long term we obviously want CEOs of large companies signing, but we can also use the grassroots approach to get the movement off the ground, then approach the bigger companies once we have enough smaller CEOs on board. (50 signatures is probably enough for small countries, 100-200 for medium sized countries, and 250+ for larger ones)
A parallel possibility could be to start Impact Weeks for Universities and Schools about 6 months offset from the main Sustainability Weeks, and use that parh to then start working with businesses.
Below is main SotG Climate &Sustainability concepts we have so far.
We launched the SotG Climate&Sustainability division on May 19th, 2021 as part of our Global Community Dialogue Day.
To date we have come up with the following ways that SotG as a network is uniquely positioned to make an Impact in this space:
