Global Humanitarian Technology - What is it?


Find out what global humantarian technology is and how you can play a vital role in saving and improving thousands of lives, making healthier humans and providing services and help for people that do not have lighting when they go to bed or clean water to drink when they are thirsty. 

Global Humanitarian Technology promotes the application of science, engineering, and technology in developing solutions for disadvantaged communities. Global humanitarian technologies are our way to show socially responsible humanitarian work and projects, that impact in positive and meaningful ways the lives of disadvantaged people around the world. Through engineering, computing, and technology innovation around the globe we make a difference. Today Professor Joe Decuir will highlight the major global humanitarian technologies which include affordable clean energy, agriculture food security, clean water sanitation, community engagement, connectivity communication, disaster mitigation, quality education, enhanced healthcare, and poverty alleviation.
