At techUK, our mission is to champion our members and their technologies, preparing and empowering the UK for what comes next. We believe that by doing so, we can deliver a better future for people, society, the economy, and the planet. We are committed to supporting emerging social innovators who are tackling today's most pressing challenges through technology, while also demystifying and unlocking tech's potential, making it approachable and accessible for everyone.
Our Tech for Good initiative is built upon four pillars, each representing a core aspect of our mission.
Active digital participation is vital, but so are positive impacts on well-being, upskilling, diversity, and inclusion. Our goal is to nurture a more inclusive, empowered society through concrete actions.
Through this pillar, we shed light on technology's potential to bolster society, spotlighting its role in shaping a smarter state that elevates the wealth and wellbeing of all citizens.
Driving the economy
This pillar emphasises technology's role as a force for good, crucial in developing effective policy and regulatory solutions that drive economic digitisation, productivity, and inclusive growth.
Protecting the planet
Rooted in our belief in technology's potential, this pillar highlights its role in driving sustainability and preserving our planet. We emphasise its role in protecting our land, seas, and biodiversity.
🪧 TechGiving 🪧
At the heart of innovation lies a profound desire to create positive change. In a world driven by technology, the potential to uplift communities and make a lasting impact has never been greater. TechGiving is a special initiative dedicated to highlighting the remarkable efforts of our members as they participate in charitable events and opportunities that leverage technology for the greater good.
