Impact Week Action Tracks
> Net-zero Prosperity
In partnership with DOEN
Reimagining prosperity and justice for all in a low-carbon economy
How can we catalyse a green society and low-caron, circular economy? How can we support sustainable and innovative companies to create more impact and really make a difference in the world? Not only for this generation but also for future generations in a just and inclusive way? How can we support our society to become more climate resilient and anticipate, prepare for, and recover from climate related shocks and stresses both through mitigation and adaptation strategies?
> Health & Future
In partnership with Ageas
Reinventing health(care) ecosystems and enabling systems change for a healthy society
How can we showcase and uplift people, partnerships and projects reinventing health for ageing societies; forging med-tech and big data breakthroughs, and redefining health equity, mental health, mobility, food and nutrition for a healthier life and healthier lifestyle? We have a duty to care and a strong responsibility to future generations. How can we support health and well-being and make a positive and lasting impact for all? How can we make a meaningful contribution to a healthy society for all: for the people we work with, our employees and partners, and the people we work for, our customers and society at large?
> Impact Heroes
In partnership with EIB Institute
Introducing new ideas, products, markets, business models, approaches to funding, strategies for inclusiveness
Together with the EIB institute we will bring together Europe’s top notch social entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs that have proven that economic success can go hand in hand with solutions for a better world. We will inspire you with their innovative and at times disruptive products and services and offer you the opportunity to help them grow and scale their impact. We encourage you to stir up their potential by supporting them in creating relevant connections across sectors, countries, and ecosystems.
> Impact in the City
In partnership with King Baudouin Foundation
Building resilient, sustainable and inclusive urban future
Resilience is at the top of national and international policy agendas. A city is resilient when a city can recover quickly after an incident, crisis or setback and can continue stronger. Cities have become more vulnerable to all kinds of disasters and tensions (such as climate change, the increasing dependence on digitisation in combination with hacks and cyberattacks, or social polarisation and unrest due to segregation). How can we as investors for impact support cities and societies to absorb such risks and possibly prevent possible cascading effects? What can be our role and how can we best contribute?
In partnership with Schneider Electric
Rethinking education and skills, labour market trends, digital and youth agendas
The labour market and education sector are always evolving. New skills, new ways of working, new types of knowledge are required. Every day, teams of teachers, pedagogical staff and professional coaches work in their own way on the growth of our children and young people in an ever-changing society. A big responsibility. How can we support people on their lifelong learning journey? How can we invest in the right tools and methods, provide sustainably support and stimulate and optimise meaningful change?
In partnership with EIT Food
Accelerate innovation to build a future-fit, healthy and sustainable food system for all
> Impact United
Developing impact strategies for equitable and inclusive societies
How can we promote and catalyse inclusive impact strategies that benefit all segments of society? How can we navigate new development and trends in society (slowbalisation, digitalisation, demographic shifts) and foster the (untapped) opportunities provided by a more diverse, equitable and inclusive impact investment and funding strategy? How can we ensure every individual, each with rights and responsibilities, has an active role to play in our society? How can we make sure no one is left behind and how can we pay specific attention to the special needs of vulnerable and disadvantaged groups (young people, refugees and migrants, LGBTQI+ communities, people with disabilities, away from labour market centres or skill gaps)?
