ICT4E is a collaborative learning platform linking NGOs to the growing networked age of humanitarian assistance.
Composed of LinkedIn Discussions, Causal Meet-ups and Presentations, the group is a fun, open space that brings together a cross-section of like minded people who want to transform the way aid agencies use information technology in emergencies.
ICT4E puts special emphasis on the on the needs of practitioners and “how” these can be met in simple, practical ways.
It’s open to anyone from aid workers to enthusiasts looking to mobilize practical action between the NGO, Private & Academic sectors.
We’re actively looking to hook up to wider initiatives (Communication 4 Development; ICT4D; Crisis Mappers; The Standby Volunteer Task; Apps4Good; Hack 4 Humanity; Ushahidi etc).
