SDG 13: Climate Action

Young changemakers from Bangkok, Brussels, Mexico City and Turin were chosen from a competitive process for the first-ever Scale360° + Global Shapers collaboration this spring. This July 23 event will reveal how these leaders implemented pilot initiatives over 6-months that made their cities more circular--innovating, collaborating and bringing about grassroots change. The event, livestreamed at this link, will celebrate these Global Shapers, announce new cities joining this pilot program and share how the one-of-a-kind, tested Scale360° Circular Innovation methodology leverages design-thinking to bring about local change for global circular impact.
