About these Live Sessions:

Techfugees is a global volunteer-led community of humanitarians, technologists, innovators, digital creators and research organizations, including displaced persons.

In March 2020, the global community aggregated open data to launch Data Hub, providing insights and a heatmap of the impact of Covid-19 on vulnerable displaced communities and sourcing existing digital solutions ready for implementation. Since September, the scope of research has been broadened to include other non-health-related challenges faced by displaced persons.

Techfugees places the voice of the displaced persons at the heart of everything its global community does. The Live Sessions are a series of online public focus groups providing a real-stage for displaced persons to share insights on regional and local challenges and explore how innovative digital technology solutions are currently tackling those challenges. Prior Live Sessions recordings are available on Techfugees YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLw6lh1G7o_OYWLC8vrvKtiblJtpXcJkcd)
