State of Change Unit

Tracking and understanding change

A new approach to tracking and understanding global change.

Launched in January 2018, The State of Change Unit undertakes projects to track and explore key areas of  global change to understand what is working, what strategies are hitting their mark and assessing how the global change industry is doing. For each project, we delve deep, survey stakeholders,  hold workshops, publish a report and convene a conference of the sector to share the findings and debate tactics and future actions. We feel too often advocacy is seen to narrowly in individual programmes and events and not enough in the whole, across a sector. The State of Change Unit aims to evaluate change in new and dynamic ways.


The State of Change is leading the discussions on how to influence the G7 Summits.
