Connecting and empowering people to create a sustainable world
(Act) for Tomorrow
for Tomorrow will launch as a crowdsourcing platform that connects solution holders to the knowledge and expertise of the United Nations Development Programme Accelerator Labs. It will feature bottom-up solutions that make a real impact in their communities. These might integrate new methods of identifying or co-creating solutions with community members, or they might provide new or improved processes that connect local entrepreneurs and the informal community to consumers, especially during the pandemic. Small as they might be, these acts all add up to make a tangible contribution to addressing the sustainability problems that face us all.
for Tomorrow will celebrate the power of grassroots solutions and foster the cross-pollination of solutions around the globe. Our objective is to build a better tomorrow by accelerating the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – 17 interconnected targets that address global challenges.
Together we will make a difference
Hyundai Motor Company and the United Nations Development Programme are partnering to help bring local solutions to the world and celebrate grassroots innovations. We believe that by working together, corporations, institutions and individuals around the world can contribute to building a fairer and more sustainable world.
Solutions that fire up our imaginations and keep us motivated
Brick by Brick
The beginning of a meaningful, results-driven initiative
Taking an active role in the Decade of Action might seem beyond the reach of individuals around the world, but we don’t believe it needs to be this way.
The United Nations Development Programme uses its Accelerator Lab Network to amplify and accelerate local solutions, working to understand them in their contexts and building on the ingenuity of the men and women doing effective, on-the-ground work in the face of the world’s real sustainability challenges.
With for Tomorrow, we are opening a global network to connect innovators to each other and to global institutions so we can reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) together.
- The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to create a more sustainable world for everyone. The 17 SDGs are integrated, recognizing that action in one area affects outcomes in others, and that development must balance social, economic and environmental sustainability.
- In 2015, all United Nations Member States adopted the SDGs and committed to reaching them by the year 2030. The SDGs set ambitious targets for governments, corporations and citizens alike. We’re on our way to creating a better world for everyone, but the immediate commitment of creativity, knowhow, technology and financial resources from all of society is necessary to achieve our goals.
- With for Tomorrow, Hyundai Motor Company and the United Nations Development Programme are partnering to empower citizens like you to contributing to the work of the United Nations Development Programme Accelerator Labs network. The worldwide network of 60 labs covers 78 countries and employs 180 field personnel dedicated to seeking out, testing, and implementing grassroots sustainability solutions just like yours.
- Hyundai Motor Company believes that Progress for Humanity means progress for everyone. That will only happen if we collaborate to take steps towards tangible action. Governments, international organizations, corporations and individuals cannot create real, lasting change on their own, so we are channeling our efforts towards fostering partnerships that will lead to further advancements. Progress for Humanity is our vision – for Tomorrow is the plan.
