Tune in to see the exciting finale of the United Nations system-wide “Reimagine the UN Together” Challenge, which has leveraged the creativity, experience and skills of colleagues from across the system to reimagine the UN together!

– 85 teams submitted ideas
– 89 coaches helped the teams evolve their ideas
– 6 workshops were held to help teams refine their ideas
– 5 teams were shortlisted by an independent advisory group and 1 team was picked by UN colleagues

These 6 teams will pitch their ideas to senior leaders, get grilled by the “Dragons”.

The Ideas
——————-
After careful deliberations, the Group selected the following five ideas, which they believe have the biggest potential for system-wide impact

conecta – a global platform linking people, skills and projects across the UN system

Skills 4 Future – an AI-powered career tool to explore career paths, skill gaps and development opportunities

UN Digital ID – an immutable, protected, transparent and universal identity for UN employees

UNicoins – digital tokens to incentivize and account for cross-system collaboration.

UNVizion – a UN-tailored graphic design tool to create and collaborate on visualizations and infographics

The final idea advancing to the Dragons’ Den is the winner of the People’s Vote:

Mobility Marketplace – an inter-agency mobility network to enhance the agility of career and workforce planning – received one-third of the 1400 votes cast.
