Innovation For All


HUMAN worked directly with the Executive Office of the Secretary-General, the President of the General Assembly and the UN SDG Campaign to capture the SDG Innovation convening and create the documentary Innovation For All. Directed by Jonathan Olinger, this film focuses on the future of humanity and the central question: Can technology and innovation solve our most exigent crises or will it drive further inequality?


This question is posed to the worlds leading thinkers and doers at the forefront of technology and innovation, alongside Permanent Representatives of member states to the United Nations. If we are to achieve the audacious goals of the SDGs, it is certain that we will need to create a framework for global and inclusive innovation that considers all people and all forms of life.


This gathering was held at the United Nations brought together Heads of State and Governments, CEOs of major technology companies, and innovation and thought leaders to strengthen cooperation and solve major challenges for the people and the planet.
