UNLEASH HACKS USA
UNLEASH is a global innovation lab for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The lab gathers talented youth to solve some of our world’s most critical challenges, using the UNLEASH Innovation Process. The first UNLEASH Hacks were held around the world in 2020 to develop SDG solutions.
UNLEASH Hacks are independently organized events with support from the UNLEASH Secretariat. During the Hacks, participants go through an immersive innovation process facilitated by UNLEASH-trained facilitators and collaborate on solutions that solve important challenges in their local communities. They learn from experts and members of their community to ensure the novel ideas are truly fit for the people most in need.
