In the digital age, disaster response has never been as swift or sophisticated. While technology and 'innovation' has created new and interesting opportunities with respect to disaster preparedness and response, such as the introduction of 'digital humanitarians', it has also created new and complex challenges around information security and reliability.

Join PeaceGeeks and Amnesty International at the HiVE Vancouver on Wednesday October 7th to learn more about disaster response, management, and preparedness. Our speakers will include:

  • Roxanne Moore, from the Digital Humanitarians Network, who coordinated digital response efforts during the ebola crisis in 2014-2015
  • Christopher Libby, from the BC Red Cross Society, who works to engage local volunteers in internal response efforts
  • Chad Pacholilk, from the Government of BC,  who works on response and planning for disaseter in BC
