A film about the faces of real change

A fresh approach to innovation, this film produced in collaboration with UNDP Accelerator Labs and Hyundai Motor Company and narrated by Star Wars actress Daisy Ridley, celebrates grassroots innovation that moves us toward a safer, more inclusive, and sustainable planet. It features five inspiring stories of grassroots innovators in Azerbaijan, India, Peru, Sierra Leone, and Viet Nam who carry seeds of hope and show us glimpses of what our future can look like.

Our
mission

We are part of UNDP’s drive to be an incubator for the future. To accelerate progress towards the 2030 Agenda, we need to be fast and curious. The Accelerator Labs are designed to close the gap between the current practices of international development in an accelerated pace of change. They model a new capability to make breakthroughs on the future of development: inequality, decarbonization, the 4th industrial revolution and new forms of governance.
