#SDGsInMiami Ambassador Series
The SDGs Ambassador Series is a movement of change-makers, social entrepreneurs, and global thinkers and doers committed to educating and demanding a call to action to unite the Sustainable Development Goals in Miami. Our goal is to leverage private and public connections to have more people actively contributing to the growth of the SDGs.
The Ambassadors are passionate, community leaders specializing in one of the Global Goals. They are equipped with curated knowledge and advocacy skills to inform and influence stakeholders, policy-makers, and decision-making leaders. The Ambassadors facilitate salon-style conversations, provide educational workshops, organize community events, and support the design of projects related to the SDGs. Their work is volunteer-based and relies on Social Impact Movement’s expertise and resources to carry out activities and projects.
Meet our Ambassadors.
#SDGsInMiami Discussion and Action Circles
Inspired by TED Talks and Brazilian sociologist, Paulo Freire, Social Impact Movement developed a learning-sharing format that is our signature program: Discussion and Action Circles. The layout consists of 2 thought leaders, 1 facilitator, 12 attendees per circle and a topic to be covered during a 15-to-20-minute session. With 2 to 4 circles per event, attendees are encouraged to switch circles and participate in all discussions, hence absorbing the multi-faceted dimensions of the topic and prompting a call to action to join the #SDGsInMiami initiative.
Social Impact Movement connects the voices of Miami community members doing amazing work to make our city a better place to live, study, work, and play. We highlight individuals and entities that are mobilizing the Sustainable Development Goals by proactively impacting (rehabilitating, servicing, improving) our beloved Miami. #SDGsVoicesInMiami provides a platform to share stories of social change and opportunities to learn and engage with diverse stakeholders. The sessions are designed by thought leaders and discuss topics of Global Goals while providing content and space for dialogue. The goal is to bring #SDGsVoicesInMiami to the community allowing local guest speakers to interact with community members in an inclusive, language-accessible environment.
