Summary, in English

Eight years since the UN’s agenda 2030, progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has been poor. A crucial dimension is missing from current policy approaches: we urgently need to better understand the human inner skills and qualities necessary to work effectively together to meet our
complex challenges.

Co-designed by thousands of experts, practitioners and scientists in response to this insight, the Inner Development Goals (IDGs) are a set of inner skills and qualities that can help accelerate work towards sustainable development. Global Leadership for Sustainable Development (GLSD) is the first capacitybuilding programme based on the IDG framework (see below).

The programme supports leaders to develop inner skills and qualities and integrate the IDGs into their processes, policies, strategies and operations, to accelerate their action towards SDGs – and to build vital networks for sustainable transformation.
