Tech for Life established itself as a movement in 2018, championing the responsible use of technology and advocating for its creation and shaping in such a way that it drives positive behaviour and supports society’s needs.

The Tech for Life book is a rallying cry to leaders and influencers in the tech community to take control of the use of technology. It provides them with the tools needed to harness technological change and channel it to develop, create and manage technology in a responsible way to improve the state of the world.

The authors leverage their extensive experience to share insight and real-life examples of how businesses can take incremental steps that contribute to the responsible creation of technology. The book is practical, insightful and educational and is the calling card of the Tech for Life movement supporting the initiatives instituted by the Techfestival and the Copenhagen Letter.

While tech has come to dominate our lives over the last few years, the current COVID-19 pandemic brings the issues addressed by Tech for Life to the fore, such as the need to employ tracking technology that will manage the spread of the disease without eroding civil liberties, for example.

As technology comes of age and society begins to experience its long-term impact, the Tech for Life movement asks three questions of leaders, practitioners and innovators in tech:

• How do we use data without losing privacy?
• How do we use platforms without creating monopolies?
• How do we use AI without losing trust and control?
