Welcome to the Tech For Good Ten, where we share the best 10 links in the Tech For Good world from the past seven days.
We aim to share a wide range of up to date news, meeting the people behind the latest digital innovations, showcasing remarkable tech for good prototypes and products and looking at the future of social change technology. All the while, we'll be exploring the themes and social issues that tech is tackling both locally and globally.
Core to our concept of humanising the reach and benefits of tech for good, we’ll be meeting the citizens and institutions who are using technologies, showing the positive difference it makes in their lives, communities and the world around them.
We’re also encouraging discussions around “What exactly is Tech For Good?” Join the debate in the comments box below. We’re here and open to discussing all things Tech For Good.
