_WHAT IS THE UN SOLUTIONS SUMMIT?
UN Solutions Summit is an annual catalytic process that culminates at UN Headquarters in New York during UN General Assembly high-level week at the end of September. This initiative lifts up and advances the work of exceptional teams with innovative solutions that advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and convenes resources and talent around them.

_GATHERING IN NAIROBI, KENYA DURING NAIROBI INNOVATION WEEK
The UN Solutions Summit co-organizers will host a special regional event with a group of selected innovators in Nairobi on June 13 during Nairobi Innovation week to give a ‘lightning talk’ outlining their breakthrough efforts to an audience of policymakers, investors, industry leaders, fellow entrepreneurs, and members of the public, including youth, who all care deeply and will bring wisdom and creative insight for scaling the solutions for long-term impact. The convening will involve in-person accelerator sessions and social media interaction with the selected solution-makers.

_WHO IS ORGANIZING THE EFFORT?
The UN Solutions Summit is led by the United Nations Local2030 Hub for Sustainability Solutions, UN Foundation, shift7, and the Global Innovation Exchange.
