I was invited to speak in San Francisco on August 9 at the ABS-CBN Foundation and The Philippine Channel’s (TFC) Speaker Salon.
Curated by NextDayBetter, the TFC Speaker Salon took place at the San Francisco Children’s Creativity Museum and featured ideas and inspirations from the Philippines on how technology and creativity can solve today’s most pressing societal challenges.
Here’s a brief description of my talk:
From Crisis to Community: Innovations from the Typhoon Yolanda Disaster Response and Beyond
Google USAID ICCM Fellow Celina Agaton shares her community and technology driven approach to rebuilding communities post Typhoon Yolanda and to addressing community resiliency year round. Cross sector data mapping, drones to map and verify citizen reports, new sustainable farming practices and anti-poaching technologies are some of the innovations being developed in partnership with local community leaders, universities and other stakeholders. These tools help form a sustainable infrastructure to identify and prioritize local community needs and high risk
Here are the other speakers and their topics:
