This workshop provides an opportunity to better understand the breadth and depth of sustainable development and humanitarian technology related activities being carried out by IEEE volunteers and supported by IEEE Organisational Units around the world.
Participants will be introduced to the work of a variety of IEEE Organisational Units supporting Sustainable Development and Humanitarian Technology activities including the IEEE Humanitarian Activities Committee (HAC), IEEE Society on Social Implications of Technology (SSIT), IEEE H&P (Humanitarian & Philanthropic) and IEEE SIGHT (Special Interest Group on Humanitarian Technology).
As well as sharing insight into contributions to date by IEEE volunteers around the world engaging in "feet on the ground" activities in resource constrained environments around the world, potential IEEE funding support available for sustainable development related projects and events organised in collaboration with IEEE volunteers will also be discussed.
The participatory workshop session will provide an opportunity to discuss potential opportunities to engage with IEEE volunteers involved in sustainable development and humanitarian technologies related interventions and partnerships.
