Inner development goals

Inner Development Goals

A framework of skills and qualities that individuals and organizations need to develop to successfully work with complex societal issues, particularly those identified in the UN Agenda 2030 and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.


The Inner Development Goals (IDGs) framework consists of five dimensions organizing 23 skills and qualities of human inner growth and development.


The framework has been developed through a highly co-creative process – involving more than a thousand people – and led by a team of international researchers, experts, and practitioners in leadership development and sustainability.
