Techfugees Cambridge will be launched on Saturday July 2. Techfugees is a growing international network of tech developers, NGOs and related practitioners working to develop technology to help refugees.
This first Cambridge event will focus on the theme of refugee camps, with consideration given to how we can improve internet/local network connectivity, data security & privacy and personal empowerment (improving access to training/education/jobs).
The conference will bring together developers, designers, refugees and NGOs in a collaborative process to identify and plan solutions to some of the problems which threaten the safety of refugees.
The conference runs from 10am – 5pm at Mills and Reeve, Botanic House, 98-100 Hills Road, Cambridge.
