INNOVATION

Fostering innovation for high-impact solutions

How will we respond to future challenges?

The challenges of connecting decent work and climate change are complex. They cannot be solved with linear problem-solving processes. Stakeholders cannot succeed alone.

Delivering a just transition requires a vision-oriented network of innovators ready to develop responses that break with business-as-usual.

That’s where the Just Transition Innovation Facility comes in.

What is the Just Transition Innovation Facility?

The Innovation Facility provides a space to source high-potential ideas and turn them into effective scalable solutions.

It will rely on multidisciplinary approaches and leverage a diversity of perspectives from a spectrum of stakeholders. It will dive into challenges and identify high potential solutions, strengthening them to deliver impact.
