Here at IDEAS for Us, actionable solutions to problems relating to environmental challenges and sustainability are our passion and primary focus. In our pursuit of employing these solutions and combatting global environmental issues we have emphasized the paramount importance of forming collaborative networks to help develop and facilitate these solutions. In this vein, we are incredibly excited to announce that IDEAS for Us has officially been accepted as an official partner in the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network – a global initiative launched by the Secretary General which “mobilizes scientific and technical expertise from academia, civil society, and the private sector in support of sustainable development problem solving at local, national, and global scales.”
By joining this vast network of international stakeholders and activists, we have drastically amplified our ability to inspire and facilitate change at a global level. Involvement in this network streamlines our ability to create new partnerships, develop new solutions, and reach new populations of dedicated global citizens searching for ways to expand their own impact on the wave of policy change and action that is sustainable development. Consequently, not only will our own work, current and future, be enhanced by an increase in resources, but our capacity to act in the role of facilitator is significantly magnified. This capacity growth is particularly important, and well-timed, coinciding with the development of the IDEAS for Us “Solutions Fund” to help facilitate and initiate solutions across our vast network of chapters.
