Allies of the Purpose Challenge

Why are we doing this

We are currently facing many different challenges, such as lack to social inequality, lack to access to education, climate change, and many others. It’s imperative to act.

At the same time, we all have democratized access to knowledge and technologies, such as Internet, Artificial Intelligence, 3D Printing, and many others that a few years ago would have been considered as science fiction. Nowadays, any of us can make a positive impact on the world.

Purpose Alliance is a for-impact global ecosystem focused on empowering extraordinary people and organizations to create a better world. The ecosystem emerged two years ago after launching a first Challenge to help with COVID and nowadays more 39 other challenges have been executed, involving thousands of people and organizations across the world.

Challenge key goals

The 40th Purpose Challenge “Creating a Better World” is a Purpose Alliance initiative, an open call to any organization, association, and individual that wants to contribute actively to generate a positive impact.

Based on the seventeen ONU SDGs (sustainable development goals), this special Purpose Challenge it’s a great opportunity to empower our global community to make a difference, create new strategic relationships, and strengthen a global purpose-driven ecosystem.

“it’s not only about doing things the right way… It’s about doing the right things”

– Francisco Palao, founder of Purpose Alliance
