WHAT IS TECH FOR GOOD?
Tech for Good Global is a UK-based movement started by Bethnal Green Ventures over a decade ago, with funding from Nesta, the Cabinet Office and Social Innovation Europe. It is about:
People– Who runs it? Who builds it? Who benefits from it?
Technology– What does it solve? How is it made? How would it be used?
Ethics– What are the intended and unintended consequences?
