Simpact 2030 aims to publish and publicise short videos, photographs or stories from synergists and others alike who have successfully tweaked or changed a convention, practice or habit to reduce its impact on the planet and its resources, whilst preserving the simplicity of the convention. The initiative informs and celebrates the potential impact of simple tweaks that can have major impacts, positively affecting all of us. The project will be implemented via social media hash tagging of videos, photos and stories of such simple changes for people to see and adapt those as well as to share them with others.
UN SDG: 12
How can you participate?

1. Schools, Universities and businesses and other organisations committed to play a part in meeting the UN 2030 Agenda can popularise the Simpact2030 videos and stories amongst their students and employees, respectively, for them to learn about these clever tweaks that are helping to create a more responsible tomorrow for all of us.
2. You can contribute towards creating and posting such short videos, stories or photos yourself; don’t forget to hashtag your posts with Simpact2030. Also, use Simpact2030 when commenting on posts that you find have messages in line with Simpact 2030.
3. If you have already tweaked a conventional habit or lifestyle practice for a greener and more responsible one but cannot make a video or write a story about it, contact us and we can help you share your knowledge with others.

The inspiration of Simpact 2030 came from synergists of CBS who have made simple changes to their ways of life as far as consuming one or more consumables is concerned to produce a considerable impact in reducing the carbon footprint of their lifestyles or in acting responsibly to ensure a sustainable future for all, thus contributing to the UN 2030 Agenda. In the majority of cases, these changes are so simple that they are often missed by most of us, but their long-term impact is considerable; hence, the name ‘Simpact’, or the ‘impact’ of ‘simple ‘ changes to our lifestyles.
Videos, photos and stories of the simple tweaks to our lifestyle as discussed above will be collated with the Simpact2030 hashtag on video hosting and other social networking websites to make others aware of these and create the ripple effect for wider impact. An annual global Simpact 2030 award will celebrate the best tweaks that have the biggest impact on sustainability, and also felicitate the most influential Simpact 2030 ambassadors across the world.
Videos, photographs and stories of simple tweaks to conventional ways of lifestyles are expected to inspire more of those. Such an effect is likely to produce a process of thoughtful evolution of our habits in making them more responsible and sustainable thus aiding the fruition of the UN 2030 Agenda.
