We care about how digital technologies & skills can enable positive social impact locally.
Why Tech for Good? Brighton has a dynamic digital scene. It also has an active charity/voluntary/social sector. And a burgeoning social enterprise scene. Brighton also has loads of social challenges. Digital can help in many ways. Let’s join forces!
Who is it for? Whether you work or volunteer at a charity, community group, non-profit organisation or social enterprise, are a programmer, a data geek or just curious about tech, Tech for Good Brighton is here to help you make connections and feel part of a community which uses digital technology to create positive social impact locally.
CHARITIES/COMMUNITY GROUPS/SOCIAL ENTERPRISES will find a friendly, welcoming atmosphere for those who are keen to find out how they can use digital technology and skills to improve their organisation or social impact project.
TECH CREATIVES/DESIGNERS/DIGITAL MARKETERS will find opportunities to put their expertise to local social good, as well as the potential for lasting relationships with organisations delivering projects in the local community.
What kind of events can you expect? Our programme will be a varied mix of 'show and tell' sessions, practical workshops and talks showcasing digital tools and approaches relevant to the local social sector. And of course some socials to network.
Is there an online space to share different needs and offers? Yes, join our Tech for Good Brighton Slack workspace to post any help you need or can provide, to take part in discussions and to network online. Join it here (https://bit.ly/2Sy1qWA).
Tech for Good Brighton is supported by Citizens Online, a digital inclusion charity; Clearleft, a design and innovation agency; and part of the global NetSquared and Tech for Good movement of innovators in more than 70 cities around the world. NetSquared gathers together nonprofits and activists, tech leaders and funders, and everyone who's interested in using technology for social change.
Do you want to meet up and network with fellow techies and goodies (and baddies)? Come along to our very first Tech for Good Brighton ‘networking & social’ event at the North Laine Brewhouse.
Here’s the plan – no plan!
No talks, workshops or live polling working out who’s in the room. Just a chance to chat and get to know other members of our growing community.
And when we’re tired of chatting, we’ve lined up a ping battle for you: ‘techies v goodies’. That’s right, chat, networking and table tennis - that’s as social as they come!
Everyone’s welcome, whether you’re a community leader curious about good tech or a tech wizard looking to show off your latest App…or just someone interested in meeting like-minded people, come along.
And if you can’t wait that long, join our brand new Slack Workspace to kickstart the conversation online: https://bit.ly/2Sy1qWA
See you there!
