Hack the Virus – Humanity in the Time of Corona

Hack the Virus – Innovation Competition in Egypt
Kickoff: 18 April 2020 at 17:00 (GMT +2)

Our most important asset, especially in crisis, is our collective humanity.

Keynote: We’re in This Together

COVID-19 isn’t the first crisis we’ve faced as a species, and it won’t be the last. While that thought can inspire fear, it should also inspire hope. We’re going to overcome this challenge with our greatest asset: our humanity!

Our technology is more powerful than ever before, which means it’s more important than ever to make sure it doesn’t undermine our humanity but supports it. This online talk discusses how we can innovate from a place of love, rather than fear, across three facets of humanity.

With privacy, we can reinforce our individual autonomy while protecting each other as a group. With pleasure, we can inspire healthy and sustainable changes in behavior. And with other people, we can stay connected with our support networks and loved ones.
