With the motto Scaling Impact Globally, Accelerate2030 is a 9-month programme co-initiated by Impact Hub Geneva and the UNDP. Its mission is to to scale the impact of ventures that contribute towards the Sustainable Development Goals internationally through creating a competition that selects the best ventures from 17 countries, across 4 continents.
The Hub then connects these finalists with a wide network of expert partners that work on delivering a tailored, needs-based scaling in order to support the finalists, in order to use their innovative approaches to address local needs.
Accelerate2030’s Brazilian finalist solution entitled Piipee, is a solution that eliminates toilet water usage during urination. By using a biodegradable solution made with natural extracts, it reacts with the urine, removes its smell, changes the colour, cleans the toilet, and thus creates an all-in-one solution for eliminating urine without the use of water.
