Virtual Forum on Social Innovation

October 25, 2021 - October 29, 2021

The Duke-UNICEF Virtual Forum on Social Innovation is an annual, week-long event that brings together voices and insights from around the world – from academia, iNGOs, business, and social enterprise – to deepen the conversation around the sustainable development goals and social innovation. The second Virtual Forum will take place from October 25 –29 with a special focus on SDG 6, which aims to ensure the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all by 2030. Millions of people, especially children, die every year from diseases associated with unsafe drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene, and billions do not have access to basic sanitation. There is much work to be done.

Through highly interactive sessions, webinars, and networking events, we will explore how social innovation can fill the gap in achieving equitable and safely managed sanitation, water, and health for all. Harnessing lessons learned from the Duke-UNICEF Innovation Accelerator, a unique partnership between Duke University and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) that identifies and strengthens social enterprises tackling the greatest WASH challenges facing children in Africa, the event will take a deep dive in unlocking economic growth, productivity, and well-being through collaboration in achieving SDG 6.
