Scheme aiming to champion the region’s tech pioneers launched by Tech4Good South West

June 20, 2024

Tech4Good South West, the not-for-profit organisation on a mission to strengthen links between society and technology, is to celebrate the individuals and teams making a positive social impact across the region.

The ‘recognition showcase’ will shine a to light on the organisations and individuals utilising digital technology as a force for good in the world. 

Champions will be selected based on Tech4Good South West’s guiding principles, which include commitment to protect the planet, ensuring accessibility for all and empowering innovation.

Anyone can get involved by submitting an online application nominating their chosen champion. The first round of the initiative is now open, with the winners selected by guest judges.

The initiative will take place throughout the year, bringing together community stories as part of a ‘champions showcase’.

Tech4Good South West aims to build a regional ecosystem, fostering partnerships and opportunities for knowledge sharing, amplifying the impact of tech for good initiatives across the region.

It plays a key role in supporting projects across the South West. One notable project and champion example is the Digital Divide Collective, incubated by Tech4Good South West, which focuses on addressing digital inclusion in Bath & North East Somerset.

The Digital Divide Collective is committed to tackling disparities in technology access, usage and outcomes, ensuring that technology is accessible for all.

Working alongside Tech4Good South West, it aims to identify barriers, map needs and initiate key actions or projects. 

Since its launch, it has collaborated with local charities, national organisations and industry partners to identify and amplify key initiatives that bridge the divide

Tech4Good South West co-founder Annie Legge, pictured, said technology had the potential to offer wide-ranging opportunities to many people by breaking down barriers to accessibility and addressing the digital divide that society is facing.

“A core pillar of the Tech4Good community is recognising tech for good achievements across the region,” she added.

“It’s essential that we celebrate the change-makers in the South West and acknowledge the potential positive impact they are having.

“The champions’ showcase provides an opportunity for community members to nominate individuals believed to be doing exceptional work, demonstrating dedication to tech innovations and access for all.

“The judging team looks forward to learning more about the amazing work delivered across the South West and announcing the region’s champions at the upcoming showcase event.”
