Technology that saves lives: digitizing civil society as a global emergency

Crafting peace and building a safer world

(Session co-organized with Commit Global). Our world is facing multiple crises, and it is often in the hands of civil society that we are putting our faith in to solve them. However, civil society actors are out of breath and are burning out under the pressure of the challenges they are facing. Technology can help solve this capacity crisis when used strategically: we need to act now to build the necessary digital infrastructure NGOs need to be able to help us.
