General Inquiries

We invite private sector and entrepreneurs, governments, civil society, academia and local communities to partner with us. We offer the opportunity to:

  1. Partner with LGEs and build a social movement in service of inclusive green and resilient economies that deliver local value and sustainable livelihoods, all around the world.
  2. Champion LGEs as an engine of disruptive innovation, invention and creative development. Most of the businesses which will drive the economies of 2040 don’t exist yet, and many of them will have started out as LGEs.
  3. Rethink systems within our sphere of direct and indirect influence that affect the functioning of LGEs, sustainable practices and business models.
