Apps4Good : Mobile apps for social good

I heard about the work that CDI Europe (Centre for Digital Inclusion), have been doing with their AppsforGood project and was v.excited to go along to the launch event a couple of months ago.

It was great to see groups of young people being supported to create their own mobile apps to create a range of useful and hopefully sustainable services, and at the same time gaining skills and confidence to talk about technology and entrepeneurship.

My personal favourite was ‘stop and search’ an app for young people to use and give feedback on stop and search actions carried out by the police.

Check all of the ideas out for yourself.

Read about it in the Times Online.
