The Inspired 50 is a new network of 50 Londoners with a global outlook who through travel are bringing about significant social change. The Inspired 50 brings together 50 extraordinary ‘adventure philanthropists’ to act as role models. It provides a public platform to share their life-changing stories, with the aim to inspire City professionals to join them by finding their own challenges and making a difference.

The Inspired 50  is sponsored by The City of London Corporation’s charity City Bridge Trust as part of its City Philanthropy – A Wealth of Opportunity project.

This project involved filming a short film of each of the Inspired 50, starting with Steve, Sophie and Sonal about who they are and where they came from and their inspirational adventures they have undertook to make a difference in the world.
