Development is much more than GDP per capita. If we want to achieve ambitious global goals we need to look at development from many different angles, not just the money in the pocket. Otherwise they will not be achieved fully and effectively.

The Social Progress Index…  What can we learn from this model that will help the world achieve the SDGs?

The Sustainable Development Goals have set an ambitious agenda for our world. But how do we get there? Michael Green, CEO of the Social Progress Imperative will share insights from the Social Progress Index to show how far we have to go and what we have to do to get there.
