To ensure sustainable development in the Arctic regions, innovation plays a crucial part. At UNLEASH Regional Innovation Lab Greenland 2022, 200 young people from Arctic and Nordic countries met to develop innovative solutions to help with the UN Sustainable Development Goals in Arctic areas within health, education, energy, and environment.
NUKIGA was present during the UNLEASH innovation lab in Nuuk in late August 2022, and Malu Rosing from NUKIGA was attached to the Innovation Lab as an expert on the educational system in Greenland.
The UNLEASH days were buzzing with energy, ideas, and creativity. So many important challenges were identified – and so many innovative solutions were presented! NUKIGA will put focus on these innovations in the weeks to come.
