Do you want to create solutions, become a leader, and drive networks to help reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? Then take a listen...
Welcome back SDG Talkers!! Thanks for joining us for another episode of highlighting change makers and their inspirational work towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)!
IN THIS EPISODE:
- What is UNLEASH Global Innovation Lab?
- What is the UNLEASH methodology?
- What can we expect from UNLEASH 2022?
Fun fact: host Kevin Sofen attended UNLEASH 2019 which inspired him to start this podcast plus connected him with an abundance of likeminded activists - such as today's guests Ana Jiménez Núñez and Serene Habbal!
So who better to get the inside scoop about UNLEASH other than the team behind-the-scenes? Ana is UNLEASH's Communications Lead while Serene is the Talent Experience Lead, and both also work full-time as Communications Consultants for Dalberg Media, a media consultancy aiming to increase awareness and mobilize partners and resources to the global development agenda. Ana and Serene have dedicated their careers to uniting media with international development and finding powerful insights that bring sustainability projects to their full potential.
The next UNLEASH Global Innovation Lab will take place in the state of Karnataka in India (at Infosys Mysore, the world’s largest corporate university!) from the December 3rd – 11th, 2022. The lab will gather 1,000 young teams of participants between the ages of 18 - 35 to brainstorm ideas and co-create innovative initiatives through human-centered design thinking – a process that focuses on the real needs of the people that the solution focuses on. Experienced facilitators and experts will guide the participants through different stages of the innovation process.
You can apply for UNLEASH India HERE until June 19th.
