Inner Development Goals

Back in 2015, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals provided a comprehensive roadmap toward achieving a sustainable world by 2030. Despite the clear vision set by these goals, progress has been underwhelming. Confronted with this reality, some pioneers realized that the root of the problem probably lies in our lack of inner capacity. 


29th of April 2022 the global Inner Development Goals was launched. Initiated by 3 Swedish companies; 29k, The New Division and Ekskäret in a collaboration with a number of academic, institutional and commercial partners. 


They asked themselves one big question: 
"What capabilities, qualities or skills do you believe are essential to develop, individually and collectively, in order to get us significantly closer to fulfilling the SDGs?" 

After 3 years of research with over 4000+ scientists, experts and inner work practitioners they launched the framework. The global inner goals consist of 5 dimensions; Being, Thinking, Relating, Collaborating and Acting. And 23 skills needed to develop for people to feel good inside and have the capacity to drive positive change.
