Innovation labs

UNICEF Innovation Labs are open, collaborative incubation accelerators that bring business, universities, governments and civil society together to create sustainable solutions to the most pressing challenges facing children and youth. The Lab model creates opportunities for young people, who have a unique insight into the challenges that affect their communities, to team up with local leaders to develop creative and sustainable solutions. The model also engages all of these constituents with UNICEF and its local networks of partners to facilitate best-in-class thinking, practices and applications necessary to enable and expedite systemic, sustainable change.
