TOGETHER IN ACHIEVING SDGs THROUGH MOUNTAINEERING
The Climbing4SDGs initiative has set its goal to utilize mountaineering as a platform for the purpose of engaging with local communities, creating awareness about the SDGs, motivating individuals to take action and supporting innovation.
I'm Anurag Maloo
Here’s my story:
I’m the Regional Director (Asia-Pacific) and Vice President (Global Partnerships) at Seedstars. I lead multi-stakeholder partnerships to support entrepreneurs and impact people’s lives in emerging markets through technology and entrepreneurship.
I’m also a trained mountaineer who seeks to climb the world’s tallest peaks to advocate for sustainability. I believe that mountaineering challenges can serve as a powerful metaphor for the struggles humanity faces in achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
That’s why I started the #Climbing4SDGs initiative, which aims to use mountaineering as a platform to engage with local communities, raise awareness about the SDGs, inspire people to take action and support innovation.
The Mountains teach us an important lesson: the world belongs to everyone! So, let’s create an inclusive and equitable world by creatively engaging with SDGs.
Mountaineering, Entrepreneurship & the SDGs
Mountaineering, entrepreneurship, and the SDGs are the heart & soul of the entire initiative. With mountaineering requiring an entrepreneurial mindset, this initiative aims at raising awareness towards the global goals.
