On Tuesday 26 June, the Centre for Global Equality (CGE) and Cambridge Wireless (CW) co-hosted 'Unplugged: Tech for Water' at the Bradfield Centre, Cambridge. The event explored innovative technologies contributing to tackling water management and water quality challenges in developing and emerging economies.

This is the third of four events as part of the CW Unplugged programme events of Tech for Good initiatives in 2018 aimed mostly at the younger tech audience.

The programme aims to address four of the seventeen UN Sustainable Development Goals set by the UN this year.

This event showcased three ventures in the CGE Global Goals Innovation Cultivator who are developing novel, affordable, appropriate water purification technologies.  WaterScopeBlue Tap and Majico presented business and technology focused questions to the participants. 

Bringing together impact investors, designers, engineers, the CW Tech for Good initiative aims to help create solutions to specific challenges for these three ventures as well as others who joined this event.


Cambridge Global Challenges is a Strategic Research Initiative of the University of Cambridge that aims to enhance the contribution of its research towards addressing global challenges and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
