The SDG House Greece is the latest initiative of Orange Grove, set up in collaboration with the Netherlands Embassy in Greece, and is part of the of the international SDG Houses network.
SDG House Greece supports the development of innovative solutions to advance progress on the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We believe in the power of innovation to create a more sustainable, resilient and inclusive future. Our aim is to accelerate sustainable venture creation and market applications that tackle demanding challenges we face through trainings, exchange of know-how and meaningful collaborations. And, to build a thriving SDG community of exceptional doers by connecting local and international experts, ventures and organizations, who want to Walk the Talk together.
Through training activities, SDG House Greece will support entrepreneurial solvers who want to develop impact-driven innovations and/or new approaches and bring them to the market with the potential to accelerate the transition towards a more sustainable, resilient and equitable future. The impact the proposed solutions bring can be on a local, national or international scale, marking incremental change or disrupting the market. Positive change, however small or big, is what we seek to achieve.
SDG House will also support new innovative entrepreneurs, from different sectors, wishing to incorporate sustainability into the culture and business model they are currently developing.
The activities will involve workshops, meetups and fireside chats to facilitate the transfer of know-how, peer-to-peer learning and sharing of best practices, delivered by the SDG House Greece or partner organizations.
The SDG House Greece invites entrepreneurs, innovators, businesses and organizations to join our community and facilitate the exchange of good practices, share expertise and ideas, and work towards achieving the SDGs. It’ is an opportunity to leverage the expertise of a community of skilled professionals and achieve impact in the SDGs implementation.
The SDG House unites stakeholders in Greece from diverse backgrounds and connects them with the SDG Houses network in the Netherlands in an effort to further promote exchange and networking opportunities while moving ideas to the next stage of implementation. By sharing best practices, challenges and opportunities, accessed through the SDG House and the joint projects of the network’s partners, our community is better equipped to enable effective and innovative contributions in coming closer to the application of solutions on the SDGs.
