Deadline: August 27, 2018

Submit a solution or apply for Selection Committee for the UN Solutions Summit 2018. The Solutions Summit is an annual catalytic gathering at UN Headquarters in New York during UN General Assembly high-level week at the end of September. This initiative lifts up and advances the work of exceptional teams who are already developing innovative solutions that address the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The gathering serves as a catalyst to convene resources and talent around solution-makers.

During the Solutions Summit, a group of selected global innovators will give a ‘lightning talk’ outlining their breakthrough efforts to an audience of senior policymakers who have the means to pave solid regulatory foundations, investors who care deeply about long-term change and impact, industry leaders who are able to deploy quickly and at scale, fellow entrepreneurs who can share wisdom on starting up, and members of the public, including youth, who will bring additional creative insight. Solutions Summit involves in-person accelerator sessions and social media interaction with the selected solution-makers.

The Solutions Summit is led by the United Nations, UN Foundation, Global Innovation Exchange and shift7.
