Join the movement for change by adding your project to the catalogue.

These can be physical, practical, virtual; they can involve new or existing relationships, networks and ways of working, within and between communities, industries or across sectors.

There are just two essential ingredients: they must be collaborations and have an identifiable social impact.

The examples and data collected through Collaborative Change will be formed into a digital catalogue, accessible to all. It will record and celebrate the remarkable local responses to a life-transforming global event; to inspire and prompt further and lasting action.
