26 Oct B1-AKT IMPACT REPORT “UPLIFTING HUMANITY”
This year, the report takes on special meaning. The year 2020 was immensely different from any in our history. Covid-19 began its spread across the world in heartbreaking ways, and the fight continues today to end this pandemic.
Devastating wildfires underscored the fragility of our planet and the clear and present threat of climate change. Tragic injustice revealed how much more we must do as a society to advance equity and social justice in our communities and countries. Millions struggled to put food on the table and a roof over their heads as the pandemic was on the rise…
Yet, the events of 2020 spurred us into action, bringing us closer together as we supported one another, our clients, and our communities in a time of deep need. This journey continues. This report shares just some of our many achievements from 2020 through 2021. While we are proud of our accomplishments, we know there is so much more to be done. As Sylvia Earle says, ‘many of us ask what can I, as one person, do, but history shows us that everything good and bad starts because somebody does something or does not do something’.
Remember that even though these efforts are minuscule compared with the magnitude of the challenges we are facing, they play a vital role, and they significantly contribute to redirecting our path towards a better humanity and a better world.
Remember that individuals have a growing potential to act as agents of transformation. This power can be backed up by the integration of interest groups in collectives, in order to achieve improvements more quickly and to have a greater impact. Overcoming the many challenges confronting our world requires leaps forward by every organization and we know that together we grow stronger! Therefore, we invite you to act!
Let us dive in!
