Country offices around the world host Innovation Days

26 February 2015

In order to promote a culture of innovation at UNFPA, we invite teams around the world to host “Innovation Days,” where colleagues can come together in a different venue, using methodologies drawn from design thinking and creative problem solving, to brainstorm opportunities and challenges that could benefit from innovation. To date, more than 10 offices have hosted Innovation Days, developing creative solutions to challenges at hand.
