The transformative trends of urbanisation, climate change, and emerging disruptive technologies have pushed us to rethink our models of human welfare. The primary human and social imperatives - such as improving literacy, providing better healthcare facilities at the grassroots level, conserving natural resources, and reducing global poverty - require sustained collaborative efforts by non-profit organisations, businesses, and governments. In this context, social sector organisations have been the forerunners, acting as catalysts to transform vulnerable lives globally.
In this conversation, two leading practitioners from the social sector will address two essential questions: what tangible impact do non-governmental social impact organisations deliver, and how the effective use of new technologies and data science can enable them to have a broader impact that empowers individuals. They will also suggest how citizens can contribute to the cause - both individually and collectively.
