Back to previous webinars

The United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) explicitly call for a multi-stakeholder approach – particularly involving the private sector. The estimated $3,5 tn per year required to attain the SDGs will need to come from diverse sources and in different forms. Venture Philanthropy/Social Investment (VP/SI), as an approach uniting a spectrum of funders committed to societal solutions has enormous potential to be harnessed towards attaining the SDGs.

The sense of urgency and energy towards achieving the SDGs is high, however it can be hard to see through the buzz to understand what is happening on the ground, and how much progress is being made. Different institutions may find themselves unsure of how they could fit into the landscape of SDG-oriented initiatives, and what role they could play in the plethora of ongoing efforts.

The 10th session of the EU Webinar Series, which took place on the 14th of June 2017, shed light on the various ways that VP/SI can be harnessed for advancing the SDGs. Practitioners from the sector representing different institutions discussed their distinct approaches to pursuing the SDGs, and shared their thoughts on what further measures are needed to incentivize more capital flows into the sustainable development agenda.
