Panel about the Sustainable Development Goals (SIGEF 2018 – Singapore)

The world is changing. While the realm of technology and information is expanding, many of us feel we are entering a new era that yet needs to be decrypted. I, myself, feel that my way of doing journalism is nothing short of obsolete, while many newsrooms nowadays rely on bots and digital engines to do part of the news-hunting that human beings would still be doing a not so long while ago. But journalists are not the only ones concerned. In Bangladesh, many workers are being deemed redundant in the apparel industry as machines are now performing their manual tasks. Likewise in Switzerland where pharmaceutical companies are firing at arm’s length due to the disruptive competition from MedTech startups. Which leaves me wondering if there really are ways to prevent the rise of unemployment, social unrest and poverty that these trends imply?

Yes, there are; and I am confident about that. The above examples are all picked off the media which, as we know, tend to be quite fussy about automation and robotics; but there is always a brighter side to things. Like, instead of the ‘robots are stealing human jobs’ speech, why not develop a ‘technology is helping us to work and live better’ discourse? From small villages in Africa to high-tech compounds in Europe, social innovation is a global reality, and it is building in us more hope into finding solutions for a far better quality of life than ever.

Consider SIGEF, the Social Innovation and Global Ethics Forum organized by Horyou; its 5th edition took place in Singapore, last September. Now a leading global event, SIGEF 2018 showcased examples of how human interactions with technology are liable to generate change for good. It also highlighted future energy solutions, smart cities accomplishments, and medical technology advances, while analyzing positive disruptive effects of Blockchain, and exploring promising areas of impact investing, in resonance with the UN Sustainable Development Goals that are set to shape better times to come.

The event notably introduced the realizations of noteworthy innovators such as Kavita Sinha, from Silver Spring Networks, who founded an NGO which uses brain implants to facilitate the inclusion of children with hearing disabilities, or Thuc Vu, co-founder and CEO of OhmniLabs’, who designed and set up an open innovation platform which calls on collaborations to make robotics more accessible.

In the words of Yonathan Parienti, founder and CEO of Horyou, the social network for social good, organizer of SIGEF, and initiator of HoryouToken, a cryptocurrency based on “Blockchain with a purpose”, SIGEF is a platform for the exchange of ideas and hope, where social innovation thrives to bring “real value for society while supporting constructive initiatives aimed at promoting sustainability and inclusion.” Initiatives like these can bring us together as a global society to share solutions and fast-forward thinking.

Events like SIGEF are crucial to show how social innovation can be initiated by everyone and, in most cases, it is sustainable and profitable. What we have learned after 5 years is that social innovation is a tool against ignorance and intolerance and to help open bridges to a healthier, smarter, and more inclusive society.

Be the change, be Horyou.

La nouvelle technologie soutient et favorise l’inclusion sociale et économique, apportant de la transparence et de la confiance à la philanthropie

 

Au cours des derniers mois, Blockchain est devenu la marotte du monde financier. Des investisseurs aux entrepreneurs, les hommes d’affaires ont cherché à tirer profit des systèmes décentralisés ou des cryptomonnaies qui sont soutenues par les Blockchains. Toutefois, la question principale que tout le monde devrait se poser est la suivante: la Blockchain pourrait-elle être profitable au-delà du monde des affaires en général et des investisseurs et des spéculateurs en particulier ?

Horyou, le réseau social de l’inclusion, vient de fournir une réponse en lançant son HoryouToken, qui est construit autour du concept de la technologie Blockchain dans le but de soutenir et promouvoir l’inclusion sociale et économique. HoryouToken doit ainsi favoriser un cercle d’interactions positives au profit de la société civile dans son ensemble, ainsi que des entrepreneurs sociaux et des philanthropes. En utilisant les fonctions de sécurité de la Blockchain, HoryouToken peut être utilisé de différentes manières, notamment:

1. En tant que mode de transaction à l’intérieur et à l’extérieur de la plateforme Horyou, ainsi que d’une solution de paiement Fintech destinée à soutenir la philanthropie, nantie d’une preuve d’impact.

2. Pour acheter ou vendre des produits, ainsi que pour souscrire à des services et produits de base qui améliorent le bien social sur le marché Horyou.

HoryouToken vise à révolutionner l’acte de donner avec son approche vraiment novatrice, répondant aux nombreuses préoccupations des entrepreneurs sociaux et des investisseurs qui recherchent des projets d’impact social et transparents à financer. «L’objectif d’Horyou est de mettre la Blockchain sur une voie positive pour résoudre certains des défis les plus cruciaux: nous donnons une raison d’être humanitaire à la Blockchain», explique Yonathan Parienti, fondateur et PDG de Horyou.

Tout en permettant à toute personne désireuse de soutenir le bien social de pouvoir le faire, HoryouToken donne également accès à un service de redistribution philanthropique traçable et intelligent appelé Proof of Impact (preuve d’impact) qui donne de la transparence et de la confiance à toutes les opérations effectuées à travers le HoryouToken, tout en sauvegardant les efforts des investisseurs sociaux, philanthropes et entrepreneurs.

The new technology will support and promote social and economic inclusion, bringing transparency and trust to philanthropy

In the last few months, Blockchain has been the buzzword of the financial world. From investors to entrepreneurs, business people have sought to profit from either decentralized systems or cryptocurrencies that are at the core of Blockchain. Yet, the main question everybody should be asking is: could Blockchain benefit beyond the business world in general and investors and speculators in particular?

Horyou, the social network for social good, has just provided an answer while launching its HoryouToken, which is built around the concept of a Blockchain technology with a purpose to support and promote social and economic inclusion. HoryouToken is set to foster a positive circle of interactions for the benefit of civil society at large, as well as social entrepreneurs and social good doers. By using the safety features of the Blockchain, HoryouToken can be used in various ways, including:

1. As a mode of transaction inside and outside the Horyou platform, as well as a Fintech payment solution intended to support philanthropy, through proof of impact

2. To buy or sell products, as well as to subscribe to services and soft commodities that enhance social good within the future Horyou marketplace

HoryouToken aims to revolutionize the act of giving with its truly novel approach, answering the many concerns of social entrepreneurs and investors that look for transparent and social impact projects to fund. “The objective of Horyou is to put Blockchain on a positive trail to solve some of the most crucial challenges. We are giving a humanitarian purpose to Blockchain,” says Yonathan Parienti, founder and CEO of Horyou.

While making it possible for any willing person to support social good, HoryouToken also provides access to a traceable and intelligent philanthropic redistribution service called Proof of Impact. It gives transparency and trust to all the operations made through HoryouToken, while it safeguards the efforts of social impact investors, philanthropists and entrepreneurs.
