WHY ATTEND

 

The opportunities to use emerging technologies for impact is growing at a breakneck pace. Across the globe, mobile payments, satellite imagery, 3-D printing, Internet-of-Things (IoT), the blockchain and artificial intelligence are being used to address the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by creating access to financial inclusion, education, renewable energy, healthcare, water and sanitation and more.

The types of organisations that are using these technologies range from start-up social enterprises to corporates, from development institutions to governments and from global NGOs to local non-profits. Nonetheless, there is a significant skills gap on the side of social impact practitioners around how to apply the use of emerging technologies effectively, efficiently and appropriately.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

 

The target audience for this training is social impact practitioners from enterprises, non-profits, development organisations, government, corporates and investment firms. Participants do not need to have an understanding of these technologies to attend.
