The Social Tech Guide
Celebrating the world’s most inspiring social innovations using digital technology
Digital technology has already transformed how we communicate, how we work, how we buy and sell. But we are only just beginning to scratch the surface of 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 first launched last year, initially as home to the 2013 Nominet Trust 100 – a list of 100 inspiring digital projects tackling the world’s most pressing social issues.
With so many social tech ventures out there supporting people and enforcing positive change on a daily basis, we wanted to create a comprehensive resource that allows us to celebrate and learn from the pioneers using digital technology to make a real difference to millions of lives.
The Social Tech Guide now hosts 100’s of 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. In fact, through the new search and filter functionality on the site, you should find it quick and easy to immerse yourself in an inspiring array of social tech innovations.
The 2013 NT100 was curated by Charles Leadbeater with the help of a steering group comprising prominent digital and social entrepreneurs. Look out for details of how you can nominated projects for the 2014 NT100 coming soon. In the meantime, if you are aware of a project that is tackling a social problem through the imaginative use of technology then head over to the Social Tech Guide and tell us about the projects that inspire you.
