OVERVIEW

The world’s population is slated to top seven billion people on October 31, 2011. This humanitarian milestone represents both an achievement and a challenge, and impacts everyone on the planet. A world of seven billion and beyond has implications for sustainability, urbanization, access to health services and youth empowerment. Companies, governments and non-profits of every size have a role to play to create a healthy and sustainable world for all.

As the United Nations agency responsible for marking this milestone, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is leading a global initiative—7 Billion Actions—to raise awareness of the opportunities and challenges of a world of seven billion people and beyond.

 

HOW DOES SAP FIT IN?

SAP is partnering with the UNFPA on the 7 billion actions campaign and hosting an executive roundtable and Innovation Day on October 24th , 2011. This is a unique day bringing together technology experts, designers, business experts, and non-profits at the SAP Palo Alto Labs to co-innovate and design solutions for the next billion.

 

SAP CSR and SAP Marketing will drive a two part event which is comprised of:

  • Executive Level Roundtable “Innovating for a World of 7 Billion” , co-hosted by UNFPA, Churchill Club and SAP
  • SAP Innovation Jam: Innovating for a World of 7 Billion, sponsored and hosted by SAP in collaboration with UNFPA. (Challenge to participants: how can we leverage technology to provide better youth access to health and education using sustainable business models)
