TUNE INTO THE FUTURE
**Building partnerships across sectors is an essential aspect of tackling sustainability issues effectively and holistically.**
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) recognise sustainability as always having social, environmental, and economic facets. Addressing the SDGs therefore requires varied approaches -- acting on multiple fronts and involving different actors. **It requires the private, public, and non-profit sectors to work together.**
But joining forces for sustainability is not an easy task. Interests, objectives, and resources vary among stakeholders, and thus many pitfalls might arise. How can partners align on their sustainability vision and make a difference together?
**In this episode, we hear from Simon Brown about how businesses and non-profits can build strong partnerships for sustainability.**
Simon is Deputy Technical Director for Economic Empowerment at Sightsavers, an international organization that works with partners to treat and prevent avoidable blindness. With his extensive experience working for both businesses and NGOs, Simon has been building inter-sector partnerships for many decades.
