Nominet Trust has kicked off its global search for the digital social innovations that are making the most imaginative use of technology to address big social challenges, and is asking for nominations for its second annual NT100 list.
The NT100 demonstrates how technology can be used to improve public services and bring about social change, shining a spotlight on the people and projects that are using the web, mobile, big data and physical computing to make the world a better place.
Annika Small, CEO, Nominet Trust, said: “For this year’s NT100, we are seeking the most inspirational social tech ventures from around the world. We are looking for nominations of ventures that have inspired people in their use of technology to mobilise significant social change. In this way, the Nominet Trust 100 will showcase and celebrate the extraordinary ways in which technology is being used to tackle major social challenges and raise the ambitions of social innovators using technology.”
Charles Leadbeater, Nominet Trust Chair, innovation strategist, and NT100 judge, said: “The digital technologies we commonly use today have been taken up at such speed and scale because they change our lives for the better. They give us access to knowledge, connect us to our friends, gets us better deals and even gets us organised. But in order to unleash the power of the web for the greater good, we need solutions designed for a world of Google, Apple and Facebook, of apps and social media, Big Data and Internet of Things, smartphone and tablets.”
The call for Nominet Trust 100 nominations will be open until 26th September 2014. The final 100 winners will be announced in November 2014.
