UN Global Pulse Finland


UN Global Pulse Finland joined the UN Global Pulse Network in 2020 and is made up of experts spanning the fields of innovation, transformational and change management, communications, sustainable development and humanitarian response. The Lab engages with a variety of partners to develop, co-create, and promote technology and innovation solutions which accelerate progress on achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This includes cross-sector collaborations with government ministries, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), development banks, academia, and the private sector.

The Lab aligns with the UN Secretary-General’s priorities and with Finnish development policy objectives such as gender equality, human rights, and climate change. It will use innovation and technology to help achieve the SDGs and other pressing global priorities. This means drawing on and sharing lessons, expertise and know-how from a much wider development community. Our hope is that this approach will create a better quality of global digital public goods which will benefit more people, communities, and systems.
