This co-creation event will involve an overview of the opportunities and challenges of adopting digital solutions with innovation and technology representatives from some of the leading international NGOs. Participants will then be invited to work in small groups to generate ideas and content around four key questions which the new DLT4Good Initiative needs to consider, including issues of governance and ethical design. The ideas generated will help shape the content of the Initiative’s formal launch meeting planned for early 2019, when key thought leaders and implementers from non-profit organisations, governments, private foundations and other donor agencies, multi-lateral (UN and other) representatives, academic institutions, technology firms and startup innovators, will come together to discuss the collaborative development of blockchain-enabled services for the social good sector.
