Techfugees NY Creative Conference
Feb 9, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 7:30 pm| Free
Techfugees NY will bring together the smartest minds in technology, design, innovation, media and humanitarian work for a series of discussions and work sessions on applying American innovation expertise to solving challenges related to the global refugee crisis. We will harness this expertise to break down the crisis to understand the actual challenges facing refugees, and we will take real steps toward actual solutions.
The discussions and work sessions will focus on challenges within three major areas, as identified by NGOs on the ground and others in the refugee space: cross-sector coordination of aid, expansion of existing systems and experimental initiatives to new locations facing refugee crises, and finding new ways to educate and engage Americans around the global refugee crisis.
