From access to clean water to disease prevention to education, millions of people around the world are in desperate need of innovative technologies and products that fulfill their basic human needs. CauseTech is a landmark initiative to crowd-source breakthrough ideas, inventions, products and emerging technologies, bridging the private and public sector into a global open innovation ecosystem.

Through collaborative thinking, they seek to adapt and deploy inventive technology solutions that can help UNICEF scale its efforts to meet the ever-growing needs of the poorest and most vulnerable and excluded children across 190 countries.
