Dear community members,
On Thursday 28 June at 9.30-11.00 New York time, the CoP-SSC4C is organising its second thematic webinar. This time, the topic is South-South development tools, technology and innovations that support the achievement of SDGs for children.
This webinar will present three projects showcasing how South-South cooperation expands access to development tools, use of technology and innovations for children. These include the multi-country Global Kids Online Project; the RapidPro open software framework; and the UPSHIFT youth-led innovation project. While these programmes are distinct in their focus, approach and potential, a common feature that links them is how they shape solutions that are home-grown in developing countries, which are then scaled up across the world using various South-South modalities. The webinar will provide an opportunity to share these innovative projects with members of the CoP-SSC4C, and to discuss the potential to further expand their access and the added value of South-South Cooperation in this.
