On humanitarian grounds

World Humanitarian Innovation Day

On 6 November 2018, the first World Humanitarian Innovation Day is being held in Basel. Forty projects promoting sustainable development are to be presented.
The aim of Humanitarian Innovation Day is to promote promising innovations that have a positive impact on the community. The conference in the Congress Center Basel on 6 November 2018 aims to heighten awareness of shared values and pave the way for cooperative innovations between humanitarian actors, social entrepreneurs, financial institutions, impact investors and philanthropists. This will allow corresponding projects to be taken forward. The topics to be covered are food, access to clean water, housing, health, education, the environment and peace. More than 500 participants are expected to attend the event. Among other things, they will be able to benefit from six main speakers, including Walter Fust, former director of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
