Celebrate and brainstorm creative ideas and solutions as we “Go for the Goals” :
- 1 — No Poverty
- 2 —Zero Hunger
- 8 —Decent Work and Economic Growth, and
- 10 —Reduced Inequalities.
In observing International Development Week 2020 (IDW 2020), we will prepare a list or infographic of market systems development interventions that have contributed to economic empowerment, job creation and the growth of international trade.
As well as a listing of key principles and challenges in applying M4P and in evaluating the results.
The list will celebrate the work of others as well as plants seeds in the minds of our readers on how they might tackle related challenges in their communities.
We will invite our readership to join us in an M4P flexi-time brainstorm challenge. They will participate by reading through the list, then naming related challenges in their countries, followed by a list of solutions they have come up with for solving the challenges via comments.
Other readers are invited to vote for each participant and add to the brainstorm produced by their peers. Voting: One love equal 5 points; Like equal 1 point; and wow equals 3 points. Voters may also participate in the challenge.
We will announce the participant who shared the most impactful challenge and solution as well as invite them to a 30—minute web conference for discussing how they could bring their idea to reality.
Date: February 8, 2020.
