The stand out insights explored
- Living conditions & basic needs

About the People's Report
The People's Report is a ground-breaking collaboration between Catalyst 2030, the Social Progress Imperative (SPI), and Play Verto (PV) that aims to use anonymised data and insights as a catalyst for discussion, representation, and decision-making. The collective network and impact partners around the world circulated a playful survey, inviting participants to share their stories. Translated into 43 languages, the People’s Report reached grassroots communities who often never have their voices heard. By the time the survey closed on 6 September 2021, it had an engagement of 17,446 people from different parts of the world.
The data itself has undergone extensive analysis from the teams at SPI and PV, and we are supporting partners, organisations and institutions to use the insights to further their own work, ensuring these voices are represented in ongoing deliberations and strategic considerations. The anonymised data is available to support collective advocacy and social action at a local, national and global level.
Where do we go from here? Can ideas drive action where data supports the engagement and impact? Can the SDGs' common denominators encompass people, projects, and purpose? Our goal is to provide a space where ideas flourish, and data can support community engagement and social impact. We want to ensure the whole ecosystem is involved and the voices of the people support the plans to change their realities and drive longer-term sustainable solutions - many of which are already being deployed by social entrepreneurs around the world. The People’s Report is the key to multi-stakeholder cooperation, accountability, and the acceleration of bold goals needed for thriving communities and people.
