The Bridge Collaborative

Imagine a World Where Our Biggest Problems Actually Get Solved

The Bridge Collaborative drove a fundamental shift in how we think, plan, fund and work across sectors to make bigger change faster. We united people and organizations in health, development and the environment with the evidence and tools to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges—from air pollution and poverty, to biodiversity loss and malnutrition, to climate change and inequality. Because there’s only one way to solve the most critical problems we face: Together.

The materials on this project page date from 2016 to 2022 when The Bridge Collaborative was in operation.
