Tech The Halls
Peace on Earth tops our holiday wish list at PeaceTech Lab. It can be easy to lose sight of this goal with last-minute deals and a seemingly never-ending to-do list. But it’s totally possible to wrap peace up to give to others this season, and it can be done through the click of a button. Here are some of the best peacetech presents you can give this holiday season!
For the Family
World Vision’s latest campaign uses tech to turn charity on its head. For the first time ever, sponsor families can upload their picture to the World Vision app, where they will be directly chosen by a child in need.
For A Coworker (or the Tech Aficionado in Your Life)
Give your two cents this holiday season. Rumie is a non-profit that makes access to free online learning resources possible for undeserved communities. Donate your time, skills and passion to the organization’s free online repository of high-quality educational resources.
For That Special Someone
Don't just give a gift, give an experience to remember. Gain new insights to revolutions in the tech and peacebuilding fields by attending conferences, talks, summits or workshops about peacetech. Here are the top tech conferences of 2020 and the top human rights conferences to seek out in the new year.
With the Oscars right around the corner, have friends over to watch “The Scent of Sagebrush”, a documentary made with the support of PeaceTech Lab that follows the lives of foreign fighter families as they make the difficult transition home to Kazakhstan after years of living in Iraq and Syria.
