Inner Development Goals

The Inner Development Goals (IDGs) is a not for profit and open source initiative. The IDGs framework can help accelerate the work towards the UN’s Global Goals or SDGs.  The IDGs framework consists of five dimensions organising 23 skills and qualities of human inner growth and development. The framework has been developed by a team of international researchers after an extensive outreach consultation involving more than a thousand persons. See the full framework.
