Description

The SDG Blockchain Forum welcomes you to the Blockchain for the UN Global Goals panel
discussion and reception at Galvanize in West SoHo on Wednesday August 29, at 6:30pm.

We will explore the world’s leading projects in social impact and the growing role of blockchain in the UN’s 2030
Agenda.

The United Nations’17 Sustainable Development Goals are part of the world’s most ambitious campaign to create a better future. They include the drive towards No Poverty (SDG 1), Affordable and Clean Energy (SDG 7), creating
Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure (SDG 9).

Originally designed for applications in digital currency, blockchain’s distributed ledger technology
fosters transparency and accountability in the data that global businesses, governments, and humanitarian
efforts rely on.

The SDG Blockchain Forum is the initiative to use blockchain technology to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Bringing together innovators in entrepreneurship, technology, and public policy to examine use cases, share expertise, and leverage blockchain to solve challenges of transparency, accountability, and efficiency to transform the planet by 2030.

Furthermore, the technology also reduces the cost and wait time for transactions, which enables every investment in people and our planet to save lives, create economic opportunities, and preserve our environment.

Our need to track progress, improve transparency, and innovate solutions to achieve humanity’s greatest
Goals requires us to reliably collect, store, and transmit the data which tell our story. The SDG Blockchain Forum
provides direction at the intersection of social enterprise and technology in order to catalyze solutions for the
planet’s shared challenges.
