#Solvable? Really?

Yes. At The Rockefeller Foundation, we believe some of the biggest challenges that limit the lives or prospects of vulnerable people are solvable — and solvable in our lifetime.

Without question, the key ingredient is expertise: the know-how to harness technology, science and innovation in ways that meaningfully improve lives. But expertise is not enough: we need to marshal the optimism that solutions are within reach, and the policies, partnerships, and financing to bring those solutions to scale.

Introducing #Solvable — a multimedia platform aimed at driving awareness of global issues that are solvable in the next generation. On podcast episodes, in more than 40 mini-films, and in a television-length documentary film, #Solvable features experts and innovators like Bill Gates, Princess Reema, and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, who are tackling everything from childhood malnutrition to financial self-sufficiency for women to access to vaccines — a fascinating array of solvable challenges related to the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.

We encourage you to watch and listen to learn more about how many of today’s biggest challenges are #Solvable.
