Submit your #UrbanThinkers Solutions & be part of the global efforts to implement the SDGs!


Wednesday, 23 August 2017 - Apply to be a part of the Selection Committee 
Thursday, 24 August 2017 - Submit a solution to be considered for inclusion in Solutions Summit 

The Solutions Summit is led by the UN Foundation, the UN Non-Governmental Liaison Service (UN-NGLS) and the Global Innovation Exchange, in collaboration with Shift7, the Global Entrepreneurs Council, and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network, with an open invitation for governments and other partners to join. UN-NGLS is coordinating the open and transparent application and selection process to curate solutions to be featured during the Solutions Summit.   

WUC partners who submitted #UrbanThinkers solutions in the preparatory phase towards Habitat III (more information HERE) are encouraged to submit their solutions to this process, too, and thereby elevate their ideas to the global United Nations efforts to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Solutions Summit is an annual catalytic gathering at UN Headquarters in New York during UN General Assembly high-level week in 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). This year's Solutions Summit will take place in the UN SDG Media Zone – a live broadcast event space at the United Nations focused on the SDGs - and will involve in-person accelerator sessions and social media interaction with the selected solution-makers. Solutions Summit 2017 will highlight projects that advance the objectives of one or more of the 17 SDGs.
