Ten Year Project (2020 – 2030)

10 Chances for Change

Coming off the back of our last successful 10 year project we embarked on a mission to create something bigger triggered by all of the events of 2020. We felt the effects of climate change through bushfires, the impacts of equality across the globe and the need for connection more than ever as pandemic swept the globe.

So what can we do to help? Well, we do what we do best – amplify brands and voices of people and companies that are charging ahead and creating change that aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Over the next 10 years we will find and bring to fruition 10 new emerging brands with an innovation, initiative or technology that has the potential to positively change our world by 2030.

Each year we will dedicate up to $100,000 of our time, talent, capabilities and skills to create brands for these ideas bringing them to life and building a social brand foundation to provide the best chance of success, to reach their full potential.

We’re empowering local people to solve local issues with international consequences to help achieve a better future for all.

We’re looking for an initiative that’s:

  • Ready to take off,
  • Reached post funding concept maturity, or
  • Waiting to be accelerated.

Which is a:

  • Disruptive sustainable innovation,
  • Positive social change initiative, or
  • Potential world changing technology.

That has a real potential to positively impact 
the world.

If you have a project or know of one that fits the brief, take the chance.
