The Problem Solvers
August 7, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
People can and do make a difference. Supporting projects that implement design thinking to resolve obstacles and bring positive impact to human and environmental conditions is important to all of us. In partnership with REI, the Arc’teryx Problem Solvers Tour celebrates people and organizations who have acted on their ideas to initiate change. Meet the locals behind projects in your community and tune into the projects Arc’teryx is supporting. Global Good will present on technology they use to help millions of people suffering around the Globe. “Global Good invents technology to solve some of humanity’s most daunting problems. We do this by collaborating with leading humanitarian organizations, forward-looking governments, research institutions, and corporate and private sector partners that bring our inventions to market. The tech industry has almost entirely been about making tools and toys for rich people. We sat down and thought, what are some of the ways we could direct technology to the poorest people on Earth–to transform the lives of people who need their lives transformed?” – Nathan P. Myhrvold, CEO of Intellectual Ventures
