Annual Event 2019 happening November 5th!

Event – October 9th, 2019

In true DCHI style we will host an interactive event on November 5th during ImpactFest, fully focused on collaboration. Bringing together experts, practitioners and professionals around the theme:

The Future is Now!

Using digitization to create a positive impact in the humanitarian context

Last year DCHI’s Annual Event saw more than 150 people from all sectors “Opening Up” to create a community around innovation in the humanitarian context.

This year we want to pick up where we left off!


A specialist in the field of Singularity, keynote speaker Yuri van Geest will show us what we should know from the convergence of emerging technologies such as ICT, biotech, nanotech, artificial intelligence and new energy and how we can put them into practice.

Energized by Yuri’s talk we engage into an interactive workshop where we will link innovative developments to the practice of humanitarian emergencies. With an emphasis on learning from each other and creating new opportunities, we have no doubt you will leave the event inspired!
