WHAT

GROWING THE FOURTH SECTOR LOOKS LIKE. 

By increasing visibility and understanding ​of the fourth sector, we can enable and leverage it to upgrade our economic system to be fit for the 21st century.

Below are "Lighthouse Initiatives" — fourth sector related work by partners and allies of this effort which are increasing the visibility,

understanding, and scaling of the sector to build back better.

 

WHAT WE DO NOW
MATTERS.

"... [COVID-19] has exposed the fragility of our societies and economies to shocks, and it has laid bare deep inequalities... Everything we do during and after this crisis must be with a strong focus on building more equal, inclusive and sustainable economies and societies that are more resilient in the face of pandemics, climate change, and the many other global challenges we face’"
