I will be participating in another twitter chat by UPWorthy and United Nations on Friday 28th February on leaps for humanity. It goes without saying that innovation and technology have been at the center of many of the biggest leaps of our time. It helps make our world fairer, more peaceful, and more just. Achievements in the digital world have also been a huge factor in driving success towards each of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
