Innovations in Technology and Visualization for Human Rights

  • Yale Center for Collaborative Arts and Media, Leeds Studio 149 York St. New Haven, CT (map)

How does radical innovation in technology and visualization serve human rights? Join us for a panel with World Fellows Ralph François and ElsaMarie D’Silva as they discuss how they’ve used technology to advance climate justice, community economic development, and human rights; how they utilize visualization—including virtual reality and interactive mapping—in creating equitable social change; and their perspectives on the future of innovation around the globe.

This event is produced in partnership with the Yale Center for Collaborative Arts and Media (CCAM) and is part of the Global Innovation Series, an exciting new partnership between Yale’s Maurice R. Greenberg World Fellows Program and the Tsai Center for Innovative Thinking at Yale(Tsai CITY), established by 2017 World Fellow and Tsai CITY Innovator in Residence Baljeet Sandhu. As part of the Knowledge Equity Initiative, the series involves a set of events and discussions hosted around Yale’s campus to explore and celebrate the innovative work of groundbreaking global changemakers across industries, geographies, and cultures. Each event is built in partnership with other centers across the university to connect World Fellows with the community and to encourage multidisciplinary debate and knowledge exchange.
