World's first UN recognised Local Hub!

We are the world's first UN recognised Local Hub - We are translating the United Nations Global Goals into Scouse to accelerate the impact on Liverpool's furthest behind by supporting all local stakeholders and connecting to a international network of expertise.

What prompted you to develop it?

The concept came from a request to develop an entrepreneurial hub at the same time this 15 year UN programme was kicking off, and we saw Liverpool could offer a truly unique innovative project to show cities and their communities could become global leaders. 

Is it in production or use?

Yes! Our doors opened (3 mins from Liverpool ONE) nearly two years ago and we've had over 2000 people through the 2030hub in addition to multiple projects delivered and supported at home and abroad.

Who inspires you?

Elon Musk, Melala Yousafzai, Yvon Chouinard (Founder of Patagonia), Paul Polman (ex-Unilever CEO), Rachel Carson (author Silent Spring), Ellen MacArthur, Jurgen Klopp.

What do you hope to achieve in developing this innovation?

Our aspirational aim is to eliminate poverty, protect the environment and position Liverpool as THE global centre of excellence for the Sustainable Development Goals, and all by 2030.
