Innovation examples – Fix The Planet
‘In 2019, Innovation360, in partnership with SAP and the UN, embarked on an ambitious project presented as outstanding innovation examples. We used Earth Day as a springboard to launch the global ideation campaign, Fix the Planet. By leveraging the capabilities of our Ideation360 platform, the campaign sought innovation examples that could help preserve our environment. The intent aligned with Earth Day’s theme, “Protect Our Species,” a call to shield not only wildlife but also humans.
Tackling Global Challenges with Innovation Examples
The Fix the Planet campaign used a robust idea platform to promote dialogue and innovation examples. Experts and non-experts joined forces, eager to confront the planet’s critical issues. Hosted on fix-the-planet.com, the campaign aimed to engage a million people and collect 5,000 ideas. Once the campaign concluded, the team analyzed the data and presented it to the United Nations, showcasing the problem-solving power of innovation examples.
Rising Climate Change: A Call to Arms for Innovation Examples
