The U.N.’s Global Goals are the world’s “to-do list” by 2030, unanimously ratified by 193 countries in September 2015. Beyond the moral imperative, these 17 challenges—including ending poverty, combating climate change, preserving the world’s natural resources—represent an estimated $12 trillion business opportunity, according to the “Better Business, Better World” report released at the 2017 World Economic Forum.
A distinguished jury of business and academic leaders selected the 17 best-of-the-best business innovation stories (one for each Global Goal) from the 422 Innovation Stories published on AIM2Flourish.com in 2016. Management students around the world interviewed innovative business leaders and published their stories on the AIM2Flourish platform as a global resource and community, centered on positive business solutions.
“AIM2Flourish is the antidote to bad news by shining a bright light on what business is doing right and encouraging business leaders, educators and citizens to join the Global Goals movement serving 100 percent of humanity and a healthy planet,” AIM2Flourish Executive Director, Roberta Baskin said.
Thousands of business-school students have completed the AIM2Flourish assignment since the initiative’s June 2015 launch at the U.N., including an intergenerational, in-person interview with a business leader. Students learn to ask positive questions based on Appreciative Inquiry, the powerful strengths-based whole system method developed at Case Western Reserve Management Professors David Cooperrider and Ron Fry.
Professors and student authors who collaborated with AIM2Flourish will be recognized at the Global Forum for their outstanding contributions.
