The Third and Public Sectors are under pressure like never before. Through our Art of the Possible discussions, we will showcase real world examples that demonstrate the impact that technology can have to help organisations deliver more effectively, efficiently and affordably and on a scale that has never been seen before.
The Tech for Good Ecosystem is alive and well in Scotland but we believe that a great deal more is possible. Our panels discuss the roles and contributions of all of the organisations that can play a part in the overall mission and how the ecosystem nourishes every part of it - charity, volunteer, employer and customer. How do we aggregate our efforts and amplify what we do to reach further?
Volunteers are Agents of Change – we will highlight and celebrate their contributions, show the value they create for the organisations they sign up to help and the impact for the people served by those organisations. We will explore the quality of their experiences as volunteers, learners and employees and provide examples of the value that volunteers deliver back into the organisations that employ them.
We've asked for organisations to give us their Digital Sparks - short videos telling us about what they do, a problem they have and the impact of it and laying down a challenge for a digital solution.
On the day volunteers will assemble in groups for a 2 hour challenge to come up with innovative solutions. The plenary will vote and the Scottish Tech Army is committed to seeing to fruition the top three most popular.
The sessions will cover three three key areas running concurrently with a challenge!
