Fostering innovation for high-impact solutions

ILO Just Energy Transition Innovation Challenge

The energy sector powers economies and sustains jobs. Still, 85% of the world's energy mix comes from fossil fuels. Clearly, such a shift cannot be handled through business as usual. We need innovative and collaborative approaches. Therefore, the ILO will be launching its first ever Just Energy Transition Challenge in December, 2021.

How will we respond to future challenges?

The challenges of connecting decent work and climate change are complex. They cannot be solved with linear problem-solving processes. Stakeholders cannot succeed alone.

Delivering a just transition requires a vision-oriented network of innovators ready to develop responses that break with business-as-usual.

That’s where the Just Transition Innovation Facility comes in.

What is the Just Transition Innovation Hub?

The Innovation Hub provides a space to source high-potential ideas and turn them into effective scalable solutions.

It will rely on multidisciplinary approaches and leverage a diversity of perspectives from a spectrum of stakeholders. It will dive into challenges and identify high potential solutions, strengthening them to deliver impact.
