Helping Communities Work (HCW) is a cross-sector collaborative formed to help achieve the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's). The process cultivates a fertile landscape for place-based impact investing, foreign direct investment, creative placemaking and place branding. The SDG's were adopted in 2015 by all Member States of the United Nations. https://sdgs.un.org/goals
HCW harnesses the power of human capital and patient capital to preserve natural capital - https://www.unepfi.org/ecosystems/exploring-natural-capital-opportunities-risks-and-exposure-encore-tool/ - HCW incorporates an opportunity zone solution, which aligns the methodologies and cross-sector partnership frameworks used for"Value Investing" and "Social Value Investing" (see links below). The plan is designed to measure the sustainable development outcomes of a place-based impact investing strategy by calculating the intentional impact value of the money invested.
HCW integrates business and social entrepreneurship to establish focused collaborations among advocates for intergenerational solidarity who may not ordinarily communicate yet share social, economic and environmental goals and objectives. The process breaks down the silos that challenge diversity, inclusive economic growth and the equitable growth, sharing and transfer of wealth.
