Jim Fruchterman, Founder and Chief Executive Officer ofTech Matters, writes about needing systems-level change to meet the sustainable development goals in our lifetimes.
- We need systems-level change to meet the SDGs as traditional approaches and solutions are too expensive or have failed;
- To respond to these complex challenges, systems change efforts need technology to help them successfully scale;
- The tech needed may already exist: software and data to change human behaviour is already extensively deployed but these capabilities could also boost the effectiveness of people solving society’s big problems.
