The Global Solutions Forum (GSF) hosted by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network is aimed to bring together sustainable development experts from around the world to showcase how they are implementing local initiatives that are advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The 2019 inaugural GSF convened 10 inspiring SDG actors for rapid-fire presentations where they shared progress, highlight victories, and inspired all of us to keep moving forward. Each Global Solution presentation packed challenges and discoveries into 7 minutes of stories, images, and insights.
In 2020, SDSN will take this initiative to the next level, with an innovative event alongside the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) and the International Conference for Sustainable Development (ICSD) to showcase the eight best solutions coming from SDSNs National and Regional Networks.
The Prima Observatory on Innovation (POI), a project implemented within the PRIMA Euro-Mediterranean Research and Innovation Programme, is one of the initiatives that will be presented at the Global Solutions Forum 2020, on Wednesday, October 28th. Simone Cresti, Network Manager of SDSN Mediterranean will introduce the Observatory, tabout the importance of research, education, and innovation in the agri-food sector.
