SDG Circle Members are given access to some of this year’s most prestigious events, each event being enhanced by SDG Circle community gatherings intended to grow strong ties between members that help foster “omniwin” partnerships for a better world.

ACCESS TO COMMUNITIES OF INFLUENCE

We create welcoming experiences as part of world-shaping events that result in impactful interactions.

RELATIONAL ADVOCACY

We advocate for members through an intentional process of cultivation relationships and recognizing giftedness.

OMNIWIN PARTNERSHIPS STRATEGY

We design possible partnership models for SDG Circle members to accelerate each person’s work in the world.

WHAT ARE THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS?

The SDGs are 17 goals agreed upon by 193 countries to realize a more sustainable and prosperous humanity and planet by 2030.

Background

In September 2019, 5th Element Group PBC sponsored and co-hosted The SDG Frontier Finance Forum at UN Headquarters in New York City. At that gathering, an SDG-inspired charitable funds administrator (The SDG Impact Fund) and a related collaborative community (The SDG Circle) were announced to accelerate the path to achieving the UN’s Global Goals by 2030.

MAKE THE IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE WITH US.

We stand at a precipice of an incredible opportunity to create and deliver moonshots that will transform our future.

Ron’s new book inspires collective action from the perspective of awe and wonder, versus the perspective of fear and divisiveness.

THE SDG CIRCLE COMMUNITY

We believe that relational, cross-silo collaboration is essential to building omniwin partnerships to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals. To facilitate that, we created a community of the like-minded, called The SDG Circle.

As a community of brand leaders, institutional donors, impact investors and SDG solution-makers, we participate in some of the world’s most celebrated events relating to socio-economic and environmental impact — and we even help host events all our own. We also work to serve each SDG Circle member with services and experiences personalized to them and their lifework agenda.
