What companies or initiatives do you know of, that is using Technology for Good today?

Facebook. I can say that facebook is using the technology for good as their main goal is to connect people around the globe. As the largest and most used social media network of today, Facebook never fails to fulfill its goal, in fact it manages to help small businesses and entrepreneurs to create a brand online and let the world be aware of their business existence. They use technology to let everyone have meaningful connections.

How can you make an impact towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals utilizing technology?

I believe by means of simply sharing informational or educational things online and supporting organizations or individuals that promote or provide access to basic services such us e-health or online education, I can make an impact towards the United Nation's SDG. And if young generation will do the same how great would it be?

With that we must acknowledge the importance of the youth for the future development, we must inspire the youth and leaders to put their social commitment into the next level they must learn to value the importance and skills of each people.
