Tech for Good Summit

The event will help celebrate the one-year anniversary of the Scottish Tech Army.

Registration has opened for the first Tech for Good Summit Scotland, which will take place on 28th of April.

The online event aims to initiate a step change in the tech for good ecosystem in Scotland, aggregating and amplifying impact by co-ordinating the many initiatives that already exist and stimulating new collaborations.

Launching in collaboration with ScotlandIS, CodeClan and OSCR, the event’s date coincides with the first anniversary of the launch of the Scottish Tech Army.

Since then, the Scottish Tech Army has recruited over 1,500 volunteers from the tech industry in Scotland, helping hundreds of organisations that serve individuals and communities across Scotland by delivering digital solutions at a time when delivering on their mission has become much more challenging.

Despite this, there is a huge potential to make even better use of digital technologies at scale to help the third sector, public sector and small businesses thrive post-pandemic.

The summit will welcome participants from across the whole tech for good ecosystem – business leaders, charities, educators, SMBs and volunteers – for a day of discussion, debate, collaboration, challenge and inspiration.

In addition, the event will feature Amanda Renteria, CEO of Code for America and Shonaig MacPherson MBE FRSE, Chair of the Robertson Trust as its keynote speakers.

As a major milestone for the Scottish Tech Army, it will both celebrate the achievements of its community of volunteers and focus on what can be achieved in the year to come and beyond.

The 28th of April event will explore best practices, showcase inspirational CSR stories, and shine a light on some the group’s volunteers.
