DATE CHANGE: Monday, 10 October 2016
Join us for the first of a series of quarterly panel discussions hosted by UNICEF NEXTGen UK! The discussion topic of “Harnessing Technology to Address the Refugee Crisis" will focus on the on the impact that technology has had on humanitarian outreach, reporting, programming, fundraising and operations etc. as it relates to addressing the needs of refugees.
The evening will feature pitches from promising organisations that have proven track records of effecting change on the ground, by utilising technology to solve intractable problems or provide scalable solutions. Following the pitches, there will be a discussion panel featuring experts from Techfugees, Google Creative Labs, UNICEF Innovation, and Kano Computers.
UNICEF Next Gen, together with Techfugees, would like to welcome you to this dynamic and topical discussion on the role that technology plays in alleviating the refugee crisis - is it a gamechanger, and what are its limitations?
