The Social Tech Guide
Celebrating the world’s most inspiring tech for good
Digital technology has already transformed how we communicate, how we work and how we buy and sell. But we are only just scratching the surface when it comes to ways that technology can be used to transform how we address complex social challenges from health and education to poverty and climate change.
The Social Tech Guide is an online directory of digital social innovations doing good globally. The guide now hosts 1,300 social tech projects from around the world tackling everything from health issues in Africa to corruption in Asia. You can find out about projects that have emerged out of disaster to ones that use data to build active and cohesive communities.
The Social Tech Guide is home to the Nominet Trust 100 (NT100) – our annual celebration of 100 of the world’s most inspiring social tech innovations.
The 2015 Nominet Trust 100 was revealed in December 2015 - recognising the inspiring ventures that are using technology to tackle some of the world’s biggest social problems. Meet some of the ventures we showcased in this short film.
Our search is now on for the 2016 NT100. This year we also want to hear about the incredible individuals behind the projects, the ‘Everyday Tech Heroes’ who - having seen the effects of a social problem in their own communities – have taken action by creatively deploying technology to tackle it. Tell us the name of your Everyday Tech Hero in your nomination. Nominate at: http://www.socialtech.org.uk/nominate/
The 2016 NT100 is open for nominations until 30th September.
