Collaborative Solution-Building

Solution-builders (SBs) are excited to "Put IDEAS into Action" and to participate in the next level of engagement on the IDEAS4GE Multi-stakeholder Collaborative Workspace.

Putting IDEAS into Action

Solution-Builders (SBs)

Participants engaging in the IDEAS4GE Innovation Challenges generate real IDEAS to support Solution-builders committed to advancing real change through impactful solutions. We believe that multi-stakeholders from diverse lived experiences, expertise and most impacted by the solution need to be at the solution-building table.  Solutions generated through the respectful collaborative engagement of diverse perspectives are liberating, more impactful and more sustainable.
