Mannaz is hosting a launch event for the IDG Hub in London & UK. This is a professional and free community, focusing on the Inner Development Goals (IDGs). The purpose of the IDGs is to increase our collective abilities to work towards achieving the SDGs set out by the UN and help us lead purposeful and sustainable lives.

The event will be collaborative, dynamic, and practical, sharing best practice, advice, and methods from across different industries. It is a chance to connect to experts, invested organisations, and professionals who share the same ambitions with making a sustainable difference to the way we work, and how we take action with the SDGs. We will cover insights on leadership and strategy, with specific practical areas of focus based on real world trends and needs.

The event is aimed at senior leaders, change makers of all levels, professionals, experts in their field, industry leaders, and IDG Hubitarians.

It is by invite only, however we encourage you to register your interest for this and future events. Due to limited availability, we cannot guarantee a place at the event and we will have a waitlist of those registered.

For more information on the IDGs and Mannaz, check out the website for more information.

Speaker topic

“Intelligent Activism” – This talk will explore the importance of connection to nature and society and encourage all of us to stretch every sinew and buzz every neurone to make the world a better place. It will tell the story of the origins and early campaigning work of Surfers Against Sewage and how a bunch of determined surfers developed skills and knowledge to challenge an entire industry and drive positive change to help achieve a £5 billion clean up of the UK coastline. Importantly, in line with the theme of this event, the talk will also reflect on what that requires on a personal level.”
