Did you know that 24% of the people in Amsterdam live below the minimum wage level? We’re talking about 150.000 people, and the numbers aren’t stagnating. On the other hand, we live in a world where the biggest technological changes are happening. The Internet is making our lives easier, and augmented reality, virtual reality and artificial intelligence aren’t just ‘terms’ anymore, they might be the solution we are looking for.
During the next Young Changemakers night we will Invite changemakers who are working on high tech solutions to tackle social issues. We will think about these possibilities and try to answer the question: Can technology solve poverty?
Whats in it for you
Together we will explore the possibilities and limits of using technology to solve social problems. Speakers from the industry will present their initiatives and show how they use technology to tackle social issues and create awareness.
In a creative brainstorm session you will be inspired and triggered to think beyond, and to come up with your own solution .
Young Changemakers Community
Starters4Communities, Impact Hub Amsterdam and partners host this community for young people who want to kick-start or advance an impact driven career. It enables, inspires and connects young people to start their own social enterprise, take on social challenges together or find work with impact driven employers.
The community provides inspiration, problem solving power, a testing stage, workshops, matching events and more! There are sessions at the Impact HUB Amsterdam on the second Tuesday of every month.
We start the event with inspiring stories from various entrepreneurs who are working hard to create a brighter and cleaner future for people living in poverty.
We put our brilliant minds together to help create solutions.
We end the evening with drinks, networking and reflect on the lessons learned.
Get inspired, learn and connect with impact-driven young changemakers. And have a good time!
