Technology underpins all aspects of people's lives, enabling us to live well, with less effort, and fewer resources. While cutting-edge science and innovation is benefitting billions of people, a billion more are left behind. In the developing world, the lack of technology is stark.
Practical Action wants to change this.
The group's vision is for a world where all people have access to the technologies that enable them to meet their basic needs and reach their potential, in a way that safeguards the planet today, and for future generations.
Practical Action's ambition is to transform the way technology is used to improve the lives of people living in, or vulnerable to poverty. The group's bold ambition builds on 50 years' experience of bringing communities and experts together to find practical, lasting solutions that help people lift themselves out of poverty while safeguarding the planet
