Our Approach

We believe that connection and collaboration are powerful tools to impact sustainable social change.  Our network of passionate and committed individuals with a focus on concrete and open dialogue, meaningful partnerships and on-ground action has allowed us to create a dynamic platform to drive change. Our members are entrepreneurs, academicians, faith leaders, corporate leaders, survivors and activists and truly represent the voice of GSN, speaking out for the poor and the downtrodden.

Our conferences are focused around Goal 8 where important stakeholders share one platform to ideate and strategize collaborative action which would give real results affecting on-ground change.  

Our on-ground initiatives are partnership driven. We have a data-based approach and look for solutions based on ground realities where local, front-line organisations are an important stakeholder. Through the power of our network and partnerships, we identify the need, the solutions,  build capacity wherever required and deliver measurable results.

Business Leaders Alliance

Through the BLA, we want to constructively engage with corporate leaders and organisations to:

 

  1. promote ethical business practices

  2. enhance the understanding of the risk of modern slavery in their supply chains

  3. implement reasonable steps in place to respond to the risk.

 

When responding to the issues of modern slavery, senior leadership must be engaged (sectorally or individually)along with external consultants and third party accreditation schemes as appropriate.

 

We also aim to collaborate with governments to strengthen existing regulation.

Through the Faith Leaders we aim to reach the common masses and work towards achieving SDG 8 by:

a)Spreading awareness around the issue of modern slavery

b)Sensitizing the masses about child labour, child marriages, humantrafficking and other forms of exploitation, and call for action to end modernslavery by 2030.

COUNTDOWN 2030

For the first time since the adoption of the SDGs in 2015, the global average SDG Index score for 2020 has decreased from the previous year: a decline driven to a large extent by increased poverty rates and unemployment following the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic. 

COVID-19 Relief Work in India

The Global Sustainability Network in partnership with local organisations and an active network of volunteers is committed to providing essential life-saving items to people from vulnerable demographics, children in need of care and protection and migrant labourers and other marginalised groups in 4 states of India- Delhi, Rajasthan, Jharkhand and Bihar.

We are providing essential medicines and medical devices like oxymetres and oxygen concentrators along with masks and sanitizers. We are also working to create awareness about the pandemic in rural areas of India and providing training to on-ground staff and the communities about the proper use the medical devices.
