Technology and Innovation
i2i recognise the role technology can play in the future viability of indigenous people participating in the economy. In contrast to being marginalised, an increasing number of rural and remote communities are benefiting from access to technology such as smartphones, computers, internet, instruments which measure pollutants and water quality, drones, GIS, water purifiers and solar panels.
I2i is gathering a global network of private sector and university-based technology experts and innovators. Young persons living within their community can be introduced to new technology and trained in its use while ensuring their culture is protected.
Some of i2i’s previous technology partners are:
Australian National University, College of Engineering and Computer Science
