If global economic hardship, disparity and suffering has been rooted ever deeper by the global COVID-19 pandemic, then young innovators and entrepreneurs can be the seeds from which hope and healing grow!
UNFICYP believes this to be true, and in coalition with Cypriot organizations and others, intents to explore how young entrepreneurs from communities across Cyprus can come together with innovative approaches for a better economic life in a socially and environmentally responsible manner.
The collaboration between Center for Social Innovation – CSI, CyprusInno & The Base by CyprusInno, and İnovatif Girişimcilik / Innovative Entrepreneurship has developed a series of activities, starting with a live discussion (online) with successful innovators and entrepreneurs, and leading to a series of workshops at a later day.

Harnessing the Power of Technology for Peace (Virtual Interview)

May 13, 2021 18:00 - 19:30

💡 The use of technology has been shown to both accelerate and enhance peace-building efforts in regions around the world. In particular, the lack of physical interaction throughout the COVID-19 pandemic has expanded the use of various technologies to help people connect across borders and communities, leading the way for the development of new tools and resources, as well as leveraging advanced technologies like AI and big data for peace – popularly referred to as “PeaceTech.”
✌️ How can we harness the power of technology for peace? CyprusInno talks to Mr. Jarmo Sareva, Finnish Innovation Ambassador, to speak about tech for peace, drawing upon his experiences in Finland and in former roles such as the Director of the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research and Chief of the Disarmament and Peace Affairs Branch at the Department for General Assembly and Conference Management and Secretary of the First Committee (Disarmament and International Security) of the United Nations General Assembly.
🤝 This virtual event is facilitated by CyprusInno in partnership with the Suomen suurlähetystö Nikosia- Embassy of Finland in Nicosia.
🎥 The event will also be streamed through Facebook Live on the CyprusInno Facebook account.
