Using tech to drive the future of our communities

Type of session: talk Track: 1 (HENDERSON THEATRE)
Start Time: 12.00

I would be speaking about my journey with the My Coast app and how I have learnt all about the power of new technology and space when it comes to innovative projects.

We are developing a platform that will unite our communities with local Councils, utility companies, local businesses and our emergency services. The aim of the project is to connect the general public (both residents and visitors) and provide them with live safety advice and warnings, information on local services and facilities and give them a wealth of options of amenities, experiences and tourist attractions - all in one place.

We are passionate about using local knowledge to make people’s day to day lives safer and more enjoyable by giving them live information to enable better decision making.

Session takeaways

  • An understanding of the power of new technology (from a completely non-technical speaker!)
  • The knowledge that we can ALL make a difference within our communities and
  • (Hopefully!) The desire to get involved and be part of building something the South West can shout about being the first ones to create
