Discussion Round: SDGs as a business booster in the private sector (en)

Why would private enterprises embrace SDGs beyond SDG-washing, non-actionable reporting or sheer obligation? We believe that they can find strong incentives within approaches focusing on economic viability, benefiting people, planet AND profit. In this discussion and co-creative session, participants will explore together ways and means to enable profitable business based on SDGs.

Facilitated by Thierry Dagaeff, member of the Praneo foundation, Innovation expert, entrepreneur and coach. He is a member of the Praneo foundation that provides consulting services to improve business sustainability, innovation and individual engagement within a thriving economy

Discussion Round : Innovation hubs within International Organisations as drivers of change (en)

In the past years, various International Organisations have put in place innovation hubs, dedicated spaces to catalyze co-creation and innovation. In this discussion round, we want to explore the role of innovation hubs to initiate systemic change within the ecosystem of international organisations and beyond. The session will provide an opportunity to share experiences, learn from each other and connect with the wider innovation and social impact community. UN Environment, the International Trade Centre (ITC) and UNICEF will present impulse-pitches, followed by small-group discussions.
