About the workshop
Technology has the potential to drive solutions for children. Already UNICEF is partnering with entrepreneurs around the world to scale up blockchain, VR, and real-time information to provide children with access to education, vaccines, and other services to help them thrive. But what about working with start-ups and tech companies to drive solutions that will reduce the impact of climate change? Whether we use tech to mitigate air pollution, find alternatives to plastics, or clean our water sources, the right solutions can have a huge impact on the lives of children in Southeast Asia. This workshop will introduce UNICEF's priorities when it comes to climate change and children and highlight what we look for in tech partners. We will discuss why this is topic is important, what partnerships might look like, and work with participants to identify potential areas of opportunity for greater collaboration between UNICEF and the tech community in Southeast Asia.
