"WIRED Audi Innovation Awards"
Social Innovation can refer to new strategies, concepts and projects that better the world – through healthcare, education or key services
Science and technology can – and must – be forces for good in society, and in the world at large. From the ways in which vaccines and medical machinery are saving lives, to air travel making the planet a smaller place, to the way the internet is advancing transparency, dialogue, and the free circulation of knowledge and information, great innovations have improved the lives of people around the world.
As tech’s big-shots begin to grasp how substantial their potential for relevant impact is, many of them have launched initiatives under the guise of catalysing positive social change.
