Gateway Zimbabwe took part in the Mindshift Global Conference on 12 May 2021, where the “Inner Development Goals” were launched. 

What are the Inner Development Goals?

In 2015, The United Nations launched the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): 17 goals covering a wide range of issues that we are aiming to attain by 2030 and live in a more sustainable world.

Upon realising how individuals need an awareness of their contribution to the world achieving the SDG’s, organisations such as Mindshift developed the Inner Development Goals – a framework of qualities and skills that are essential for each of us to work on, in order to collectively reach the Sustainable Development Goals.

To learn more about the IDGs, visit: or the MindShift website:

The Inner Development Goals aim to educate, inspire and empower individuals to be a positive force for change in society. We are all invited to this global inquiry & exploration of how the inner meets the outer. 

The Gateway session invoked the spirit of the Dare – the meeting place of the community which is an ancient custom in Zimbabwe.  

What we noticed is that we are more similar than we are different and Gateway Zimbabwe will host the “Finding our way home through Gateway” series in response to the impulse of possibility generated by the Mindshift session – a deep desire to continue weaving these threads:

To explore this sense of connecting with kindred spirits in new ways.  To explore the longing to come together, connecting authentically in a global dialogue across continents and histories and asking how we might resource each other as points of light and maintain connection across so many worlds. 

To provide grounding in the midst of so much movement and uncertainty. Finding our roots in connectivity that reaches from the micro of my personal experience to families, community and even our societies. 

From that slower, grounded place we will sense and observe what is here now, offering a new sensibility from that place that can reweave our social fabric.

Registrations Starting in July on the Gateway Zimbabwe Website.
