Episode Info

This week in Tech for Good land we have regulars Bex, Jonny and Greg, who are joined by Tom Steinberg. Besides being an optimist, Tom leads on digital at the Big Lottery Fund and founded the active citizen organisation My Society which created such awesome things as Fix My Street and They Work For You.

 

This week the gang talk about the value of design in our economy, Jonny was delighted to discover it wasn’t zero as Greg has been telling him for years. There’s inclusive tech for older people from Hello Daisy and a look at the governments Civil Society Strategy which leads into a rant about honesty and openness.
