Crowdsourcing & Digital Innovation for Sustainability

Monday, December 04, 2017

18:00 - 21:00

Here at The Crowd, a genuine belief in “The Wisdom of Crowds” is central to our mission. It is part of our DNA and central to everything we do.

We also believe that solutions for the most challenging global problems confronting business, government and society, can be found by tapping into the deep wellspring of innovation, passion and experience that exists in humanity’s collective intelligence.

In today’s digitally empowered and socially connected “Idea Economy” we have an unprecedented ability to harness the diverse perspectives of large groups of people from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines, to develop new creative solutions for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, and making the world a better place for everyone.

So, for our final Crowd Forum of 2017, it gives us great pleasure to present a sustainability leader from one of the world’s most respected companies who also shares this belief.

Chris Wellise, the recently appointed Chief Sustainability Officer at HP Enterprise (USA) will be joining us this December 04, to share his experience and lessons from the company’s award-winning Living Progress Challenge – a signature initiative that combined the power of crowdsourcing, design thinking and digital technology to tackle some of the biggest global sustainability, environmental and social problems.

By 2020, the HPE Living Progress Challenge aims to accelerate opportunities for one million people by combining information technology and Hewlett Packard Enterprise employee expertise with the global community’s most innovative ideas.

There are tremendous lessons here for all business and sustainability leaders. Come learn more about this exciting program and its global impact in an evening with Chris Wellise, CSO of one of the world’s most respected tech companies.
