PATHFINDERS GRAND CHALLENGE
The international community’s mandate: to “significantly reduce all forms of violence and related death rates everywhere” by 2030 (SDG16.1). Our bold ambition and steadfast commitment: to halve global violence by 2030.
Reducing violence by 50% in the next decade is not a radical proposition.
Violence is not inevitable; it is a preventable epidemic because solutions are known and are an investment with exponential returns.
Pathfinders seeks to increase ambition and political will worldwide: leaders at all levels must take responsibility for achieving significant, sustained, and measurable reductions in violence, by setting high level targets, accelerating unity of effort and expanding financing.
Pathfinders is partnering with a variety of national governments, city authorities, international organizations, national and grassroots non-governmental organizations, as well as business and philanthropic groups to launch and support a Movement to Halve Global Violence by 2030.
The Movement is spearhead by the Halving Global Violence Task Force, a high-level coalition working to increase ambition, attention, and tools to develop and implement a shared action plan for policymakers worldwide to deliver on this ambitious agenda.
