The Concordia Campaigns for Social Impact Series narrows our programmatic, research, and networking focus to tackle a particularly pressing global problem over a multiyear period. A Campaign draws attention to a specific challenge and catalyzes action for maximum social impact around that issue. Concordia runs multiple Campaigns concurrently to fully leverage the Concordia platform and network.
Concordia’s mission is to leverage the power of public-private partnerships to elevate issues that affect governments, businesses, and civil society. By bringing together diverse stakeholders, a campaign raises the discourse to inform citizens and organizations on a pressing problem. Through the annual Summit, multiple smaller gatherings, and broad media platforms, Concordia can target key audiences and thus quickly raise awareness around an issue.
Our team of experts will develop a series of deliverables to paint a clear picture of the campaign issue and propose concrete action for public and private stakeholders. Action-oriented research outputs will identify knowledge gaps, provide recommendations on how to fill them, and guide a campaign towards maximum social impact. Together with its partners, Concordia will recruit experts to participate in a fellowship program. Fellows will conduct research to help enhance the campaign’s visibility and guide it towards partnerships that will have the greatest impacts.
The end goal of each Campaign is to build and support public-private partnerships that provide meaningful and sustainable social impact in a Campaign space. Through all of its Campaign work, Concordia operates in partnership with private, public , nonprofit, and academic partners, embodying its collaborative ideals.
