The first Techfugees NY creative conference will take place on February 9 in New York City. The event will bring together expertise from tech, design, innovation, media and other communities to explore solutions to the global refugee crisis.
Techfugees NY will bring together the smartest minds in technology, design, innovation, media and humanitarian work for a series of discussions and work sessions focused on how to apply the expertise that exists within the United States to solving challenges related to the global refugee crisis. We will harness this expertise to break down the crisis to understand the actual challenges facing refugees, and we will take real steps toward actual solutions.
The discussions and work sessions will focus on challenges within three major areas, as identified by NGOs on the ground and others in the refugee space.
