Galvanized by the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the world is  moving to a new impact economy:
one where impact on people and planet guide our decisions along with risk and return.

What does this global shift mean for Africa, its leaders, and its people?

On 6 & 10 December, join the GSG and leaders from Africa and around the world for two Impact Dialogues
on the unique role that Ghana and Kenya can play in ushering in the impact economy of the future.
