UNLEASH is a non-for-profit organization, committed to gather youths, to share ideas and develop solutions for the Sustainable Development Goals. The purpose of the Innovation Lab is to gather on ideas, build networks and develop sustainable solutions with relevance for Greenland and the region.

“There is a rising commitment for sustainable development among youths around the world, among these also Greenlandic youths. We hope the UNLEASH Innovation Lab can give our young people a platform where they together with young people from abroad can be inspired and inspire others. If we are to aim to create a sustainable and more equal world, we do depend on both known initiatives as well as new ideas and solutions. Many of these can be expected to come from the younger generations. We hope that the Innovation Lab can develop durable and positive results that benefit young people and society in Greenland,” states Minister for Finances, Mineral Resources, Justice and Equality.
