An essential pillar for development.
Climate change is already exacerbating social problems. Global temperatures are expected to rise 2.7°C by 2100, creating a great need to adapt to social challenges such as migration, food crises, pests, diseases and rising sea levels.
This is why at Dcycle we have created the Social Innovation Guide, to find out how to respond to climate change. Because environmental and social sustainability solutions have to go hand in hand.
In this guide, we review the key definitions of social sustainability and innovation. We exemplify how to approach the different Sustainable Development Goals through social innovation and talk to experts to inspire companies to challenge the current boundaries of sustainability.
Over the coming years, social innovation will become a tool for tackling the biggest challenge facing humanity: climate change. In this guide, we highlight the need to incorporate the human pillar into sustainable development. We have the opportunity to use the power of innovation and entrepreneurship to provide solutions to real problems. Companies have a key role to play in generating and scaling change, many are already providing solutions.
