WHAT ARE THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS?

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also being referred to as the Global Goals, are a set of 17 goals for global dignity, prosperity, partnership, and justice for all people and the planet. The framework will be formally launched over September 25-27th, 2015. UN Member States, civil society, and private sector contributors will use the Sustainable Development Goals to shape and guide development global efforts over the next 15 years.

WHAT IS THE SOLUTIONS SUMMIT?

The Solutions Summit is a catalytic gathering that will take place on Sunday, September 27th, 2015 at UN Headquarters in New York City. The event is timed to follow the conclusion of the 3-day high-level UN General Assembly Summit to adopt the Post-2015 Development Agenda. The purpose of the Solutions Summit is two-fold 1) to make visible, and lift-up exceptional innovators — technologists, engineers, scientists, and others — who are developing solutions that address one or more of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 2) to catalyze a grassroots effort, where communities scout and convene resources around solution-makers.

WHAT ARE THE INTENDED OUTCOMES?

During the inaugural Solutions Summit on the 27th of September, a group of 17-20 global innovators will be invited to give a well-rehearsed ‘lightning talk’ outlining their breakthrough efforts to a juxtaposed audience of senior policymakers who have the means to pave solid regulatory foundations, investors who care deeply about long-term change and impact, and industry leaders who are able to deploy quickly and at scale. The physical gathering will serve as a catalyst for a longer-term, locally-led and globally-supported effort to activate the world’s most forward thinking technologists, scientists, and engineers and to convene the resources and talent to apply their work in addressing the Sustainable Development Goals. This effort is being shaped in real-time and everyone is welcome to take part.

WHO IS ORGANIZING THE EFFORT?

The Solutions Summit is being led by the UN Foundation, Project Everyone, the UN Non-Governmental Liaison Service (UN-NGLS), in collaboration with the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation, the Kenyan Ministry of Information Communications and Technology, (with an open invitation for other governments and collaborators to join), the Estonian Information System Authority, and with the indispensable support of global friends and colleagues. UN-NGLS is fully coordinating the selection process to curate solutions that will be featured during the inaugural Solutions Summit.

Help us surface extraordinary individuals and teams who are developing solutions that address the SDG(s) and encourage them to apply. Please share this form with others and spread the word!
