About Us

Facilitating sustainable development and community-led change for islands worldwide

Our mission is to help drive sustainable development across islands worldwide.

We facilitate connections between island stakeholders and sustainable development practitioners across the globe to share knowledge and promote collaboration. 


By creating a support network, we smooth the way for developing innovative solutions to drive economic performance, ensure political stability and promote good governance, which improves the social and environmental conditions within island communities.

We understand the importance for the international community to start listening to people on islands and in Small Island Developing States (SIDS).

These communities have vital knowledge that can significantly help poorer nations and developed countries become more sustainable, and teach us all about how to live more harmoniously with the natural environment. 

Why Islands?

Islands make up only 5% of the Earth’s surface area, yet they are home to 20% of the world’s bird, reptile, and plant species, besides over 40% of highly endangered creatures. At the same time, island populations are constantly under pressure to develop their economies while building resilience to issues such as climate change and natural disasters. The lack of resources, visibility, and support can be challenges for islands to develop sustainably.

Many of the world’s most vulnerable islands are small, secluded, and frequently neglected. 

The four-pillar approach at Island Innovation ensures we engage all key stakeholders and consider the cumulative impact on citizens:

Economic

We aim to grow economic prosperity and quality of life in island communities by fostering innovation and more sustainable consumption and production patterns.

Political and Governance​

We help local island policymakers generate informed decisions to bring about transformative change, strengthen democratic institutions within islands, and revitalize international political partnerships to achieve the SDGs.​

Social

We provide access to innovations and platforms that foster social bonds that hold communities together, including reducing inequalities within and among countries. Furthermore, we support NGOs, private companies and other social enterprises to ensure they succeed on their projects.​

Environmental​

An environmentally sustainable future is crucial for the well- being of all life on earth, so we strongly support green projects which protect, restore and promote sustainable use of the land, as well as blue projects which conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources.​
