About

Catalysing Social Impact [CSI] is a living forum hosted by the Catalyst Group for thinkers, doers, and investors who come together to ignite positive changes in the field of social impact through strategic initiatives.

  • The first forum was held in 2019 using the Solutions Circle approach - in hybrid and physical spaces in Bengaluru and morphed into the #COVIDActionCollab for pandemic response during 2020-2022.
  • In 2022, the #COVIDActionCollab further transformed into #CommunityActionCollab to build pandemic preparedness and resilience.

Catalysing Social Impact is back in 2024 as a convening between 31st July - 1st August, 2024 in New Delhi to craft an inclusive and transformative path towards 2047 - India at 100 | Viksit Bharat @2047 the vision to make India a developed nation by 2047, the 100th year of independence.
