Description

ONE, Transparency International, Okayafrica, and the United Nations Millennium Challenge present an interactive conversation on the emerging people-powered, technology-facilitated activism that is making a real difference in peoples' lives in the developing world.

A generation of evidence-based activists, 'Millennial Factivists', discusses ways technology and data can be used to turbocharge development by making governments more transparent, accountable and better providers of public services. They also explore the ways technology encourages greater public participation in decisions that affect their daily lives and how 'Factivism' can help meet the current Millennium Development Goals and be used for framing a post-2015 agenda focused on eradicating extreme poverty by 2030.
