Making Waves: The Rising Tide of Data for Social Good – Views from the BT Better Future Forum | Report

BT’s Better Future Forum is an online discussion that brings together the world’s leading thinkers to share and develop new strategies to help build a more sustainable future for everyone.
On 1 July 2014, hundreds of experts from around the world joined BT and GlobeScan in a Forum to explore the significant challenges in influencing consumer behaviour and the increasing opportunities for digital data and technology to help in tackling big societal issues.
The discussions were framed around two conversations – how digital connectivity can accelerate our journey towards sustainable consumption, and how we can ride the new wave of digital data to deliver good for society and the environment.
Findings from those sessions are summarised in this document, as well as the three key areas of insights that have emerged from across the Forum.
