to address the Sustainable Development Goals together!
If we are going to reach the UN’s Global Goals and Agenda 2030, we need to innovate in the broadest sense. Whether you are a startup, intermediary or corporate, working in the public sector, civil society, academia or a government agency, there is something at this event for everyone. We all need to be part of the innovation journey.
Sweden Innovation Days will be a free four-day, global digital event, dedicated to fostering international collaboration on January 17-2022. It will focus on what changes we need to make in order to achieve the UN’s Global Goals. We need to innovate how we innovate!
Despite Sweden being one of the top innovative countries in the world, we still need to constantly strive to improve the way we work with innovation, both strategically and practically. We need transformative innovation with clear missions and holistic societal engagement to make a long-term impact. Join the digital program for a wide range of seminars, practical workshops and matchmaking sessions and contribute towards reaching the Global Goals together!
The Global Goals address a broad range of society’s biggest challenges including climate change, social and economic inequality, healthcare, education and sustainable industry.
