Digital4Change@HEC 2014, a special session of the Social Business Certificate

Digital 4 Change 2014What is D4C? It’s a collective vision focused on supporting and encouraging stronger ties between technological and societal innovations. Specifically, Digital4Change aims to engage people to change the world through social actions, specifically using technology such as web 2.0 tools.

It all started in December 2010 with one week of events dedicated to technological and societal innovations. More than 50 partners worked collaboratively to bring together specialists from around the world and set the Digital4Change movement in motion. On December 9th 2010, HEC Paris hosted an exceptional conference with professor Muhammad Yunus and Martin Hirsch, along with a number of important guests, including Florence Devouard (Wikipedia), Mitchell Baker (Mozilla), Matt Flanery (Kiva) & Walter de Brouwer (OLPC) and Joe Green (Causes).
