As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility, at Catalyst Global - Together, as a network we are making a huge impact!
Catalyst Global's Lifetime Partnership with the Global Giving Initiative, Buy1GIVE1 (or B1G1) allows us to make a real difference to people we may never get to meet. B1G1 is a Social Enterprise and non-profit organisation with a mission to create a world that’s full of giving.
Everytime anywhere in the world someone participates in a Catalyst Global program with one of its network partners, Catalyst Global gives to one of B1G1's specially selected array of high impact projects.
But it doesn't stop there; network partners who are members of B1G1 also give each time they run a program compounding the giving!
We highly recommend that you check out B1G1. Unlike conventional giving models, B1G1 helps small and medium-sized businesses achieve more social impact by embedding giving activities in their everyday business operations to create unique Giving Stories. Every business transaction (and, as a result, your everyday activity) can impact lives from as little as just 1 cent.
For us at Catalyst, it completes a great ‘virtuous circle’: great game design, great impact on all participants and their companies, doing great things; together with you.
Our Impact on the Sustainable Development Goals
A breakdown of the impacts Catalyst Global has created in alignment with each Sustainable Development Goal (SDG).
Catalyst Global has specific programs that enable our clients to not create global impacts in the world simply by participating in a team-building activity. What's more, these programs bring awareness to participants of the Sustainable Development Goals and the enormous value that giving can have on the lives of others.
IMPACT is a team-building activity that can be played by face-to-face teams, working remotely or in a multi-locational hybrid group. It emphasises giving and affects the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This highly engaging team-building exercise teaches participants the blueprint for success in achieving a better future by understanding the SDGs. Impact is available as a face-to-face program or a remote team building activity.
Give Backpack is a CSR team building activity in which teams participate in various engaging challenges to fill backpacks for people without housing. Each team is assigned exciting, engaging, and sometimes challenging tablet tasks. Teams enter their answers, including photos and videos of their achievements. By completing challenges, teams are rewarded with items to fill their backpacks. Items include non-perishable food and toiletries.
Teams use tablets and the Go Team app to review checkpoints and special fundraising projects. A unique 'Go Team Follow Arrow' guides the team to a selected waypoint. Upon arrival, participants work together to complete a GPS-guided challenge that includes questions, cryptic clues, photo criteria, and timed tasks. Success affects selected Fundraising Projects.
Teams complete fun, creative, collaborative, mental and physical ‘eco challenges’ delivered by our unique game app to earn sustainable materials. Then, using these materials they construct three eco-friendly wildlife habitats - Bird Boxes, Insect Hotels, and Bat Boxes.
