In spite of numerous international summits and a growing political will in many countries to work towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals
(SDGs), we have not yet managed to come together and co-operate on achieving them at scale. The UN first presented these goals in 2015, yet we seem no closer to co-creating a sustainable world. Why is that the case? Jan Artem Henriksson believes that due to the complexity of our challenges, we need to shift our attention to what is going on inside of us. The Swedish-Ukrainian leadership trainer and education professional is the CEO of the Inner Development Goals
(IDG) Initiative, which was founded by the Ekskäret Foundation
and The New Division
. The ambition is to use personal development to provide a framework for and build the transformative skills needed for a sustainable society. Partners such as Ashoka, Stockholm School of Economics, Karolinska Institute, Spotify and IKEA support the initiative.
