We’re on a mission to solve the world’s biggest challenges through radical collaboration.

To have an impact on these challenges we need to work together. To think beyond our own disciplines, products, organisations and borders. We’re looking for businesses and individuals who can contribute time, ideas or resources.

Impact highlight - ShareThyme

We are impacting the Good Health and Well-being sustainability goal. by tackling loneliness and social exclusion.

Loneliness is seen by many as one of the largest, growing health concerns we face. Studies show a strong link between loneliness and ill health, reducing the quality of life and in some cases, shortening life. The problem is particularly acute with older people, by 2025/6 it is projected that two million people over 50 will be experiencing loneliness, a 49% rise over ten years.

We built ShareThyme to tackle this issue. It is a platform that uses cooking lessons to bring together generations. Older people with a lifetime of cooking skills and recipes are paired with younger people who want to learn.See what we built

The challenges

We are putting together coalitions to tackle a range of challenges related to UN sustainability goals. If one resonates with you, get involved – we’d love to work with you.

Relates to UN Sustainable Development Goal 10:
Reduce inequality

Economic inequalities are damaging for individuals and states and they can become self-reinforcing. In Britain, being born privileged means that you are likely to remain privileged. Being born disadvantaged, however, means that you will have to overcome a series of barriers to ensure that you and your children are not stuck in the same trap.

Help us to shape our mission in this challenge area.
