Catalyst 2030 Awards | 2022

For Systemic Change

Awards | 2022

Catalyst 2030 announced the winners of the Catalyst 2030 Awards for Systemic Change | 2022 at Althorp House in Northamptonshire, UK on 22 June 2022.

The online, global awards ceremony, hosted by renowned BBC journalist Emily Kasriel and author, entrepreneur and Chief Growth Officer at Clearco, Ruma Bose, celebrated organisations that are driving co-creative collaborations that are confronting some of the world’s most pressing problems, such as poverty, illiteracy, health crises and access to education.

Sixty finalists were selected from more than 200 Catalyst 2030 member nominations. The overall criteria for the Awards were developed from the collective expertise of Catalyst 2030 members, building on the movement’s solid frameworks for catalytic systems change work.

“The awards finalists are all involved in important and impactful systems change work, presenting our independent jury with the difficult task of selecting just a handful of winners in each of the four award categories, ranging from corporates, governments and donors, to bilateral and multilateral organisations across the globe, from Africa and the Americas to MENA, Europe and Asia Pacific,” said Sohini Bhattacharya, Co-chair of the Awards Committee.

Certificates and trophies, designed by artisans from The India Arts Project and Creative Dignity, were presented to 15 Catalyst 2030 Awards winners. View the awards design process here.
