What We Do

We advance human dignity and protect the planet through our work on transformative issues critical to humanity’s shared future. We strive to defend progress already made and unlock the collective promise of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) across interconnected issues, including climate, health, gender equality, human rights, the future of multilateralism, as well as peace, and humanitarian response.

As an independent charitable organization created to work closely with the United Nations, we bring together fresh thinking and diverse voices around innovative ideas to drive progress and tackle problems. We build communities of support and nurture initiatives to advance the dignity and well-being of people and planet.

Sometimes we work behind-the-scenes, shaping negotiations and connecting experts, advocates, and decision-makers. Other times we drive public awareness and involvement through communications, campaigns, and events. Always we work to build collective action through the UN, the only place where everyone on earth can have a voice.


We build durable constituencies to support the UN and its work.
