This ‘Impact Gaps Canvas’ was designed by Skoll Centre Deputy Director, Daniela Papi-Thornton, as part of her research for the Clore Social Leadership Programme.

This canvas is a tool to help you ask the questions you might want to consider in creating your entry for the Challenge. By asking questions related to the challenge landscape (questions about the problem and its impact as well as what might be holding the current status quo in place) and the solutions landscape (what is already being tried and what has or hasn’t worked) you can then identify gaps where the solutions are failing to meet the problems.

You can use this tool to help guide your research, but don’t let it restrict your creativity and thought processing! You will likely want more room to spread out your findings in the problem and solutions landscapes and make use of additional resources.
