Twitter Chat: Voices From The Field #scalepeacetech

PeaceTech Lab hosted a live Twitter Chat at 10:00am EST on January 28, 2016 using #scalepeacetech. International peacebuilders discussed their work, explore challenges with scaling technology solutions to address drivers of conflict, and provided insights on the three broader themes of PeaceTech Summit 2016:

  1. Investing in Local PeaceTech: New PeaceTech ideas and entrepreneurship are vital to scaling PeaceTech, especially in the field.

  2. Scaling Media in Peace: Traditional media is essential to scaling PeaceTech -- as much as new and social media.

  3. Data to Drop Violence: For the first time in human history, predicting violence may be possible, but that requires a deeper understanding about the nuances of conflicts.
