Our Theory of Change

Our Approach

Our Framework

In 2015, during his tenure as the 8th Secretary-General of the United Nations, BKMC Co-chair Ban Ki-moon led the adoption of two major commitments which promote human dignity for all while protecting the planet. Together, they establish the framework of the BKMC and build a roadmap for humanity toward a better future. They call to eradicate extreme poverty with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities while tackling climate change and environmental protection.
