Making the world a better place is the primary social cause of our community.
Looking through the prism of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) could be a great way to help demonstrate our commitment to the goals we deeply care about. More specifically, SDGs 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, and 17 are the ones that make the core of our values.
"THe Social" & the sustainable development goals
SDG 4 Quality Education
Almost all our events around the world have educational agenda that brings in experts to deliver short talks with ideas that will improve the world. The range of topics includes education, culture, art, history, science, technology, innovation, business, health, sports, and many other. Each speaker goes through a rigorous curation process by our qualified community ambassadors in order to deliver superb quality talks for general intellectual audience.
SDG 5 Gender Equality
We believe in the fundamental power of human, and therefore in complete agnosticism to gender when it comes to social interaction. The format of “The Social” events fosters gender balance ensuring equal opportunities, zero tolerance for prejudice or all kids of gender biases. One of our members once said “I understood what “The Social” is all about! It’s the only truly global networking format in which my husband and I can feel equally comfortable and valuable, no matter which community we’re in or which topic the speaker delivers on!”
SDG 9 Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
Just like building of asphalt roads contribute to population mobility, building of meaningful personal contacts through the curated networking format of “The Social” contributes to world’s intellectual connectivity. Our aspiration is to build a universal and global social infrastructure that allows to bring your social life to the next quality level. As far as it concerns “innovation”, it is a popular theme in our content plan and almost all other topics do touch this angle.
SDG 10 Reduced Inequalities
Groups exhibiting exclusive attitude to other groups due to the difference in material resources often trigger all kinds of inequalities. “The Social” strives to make a difference on two fronts at a time: on one side, the participation barriers and costs are minimal, on the other side, ambassadors actively curate the audience in order to celebrate diversity in all intellectual forms.
SDG 11 Sustainable Cities and Communities
The dream of “The Social” is to become the world’s go-to curator of meaningful human introductions, thus making our communities and geographies connected more than ever. “The Social” was founded in 2013 and has been sustainably growing and evolving ever since.
SDG 17 Partnerships for the Goals
“The Social” has a number of strategic partnerships with educational, business, and governmental institutions around the world, which provide consistent access to relevant thought leadership, target audience, scalability, sustainability and active impact of our curated networking concept.
