GBBC Joins the United Nations’ BC100+ Initiative
BC100+ is a global initiative, under the High Patronage of H.E. Csaba Körösi, President of the 77th UN General Assembly, that aims to convene the blockchain ecosystem to the broader efforts of UN Agencies and global initiatives in support of the UN Charter values and the SDGs by mapping global Blockchain for Sustainability ecosystems.
BC100+ is an initiative that brings together a variety of organizations across different sectors. The initiative’s main goal is to raise awareness about the potential of blockchain for social impact and sustainability. BC100+ explores the potential of blockchain technology to address systemic issues such as inequality, poverty and climate change by rebuilding trust, empowering communities, asserting accountabilities, and re-distributing value on the global level. With its core features, blockchain technology could play a role in the acceleration of much needed changes within our global food system, energy infrastructure and biodiversity protection among other issues. At the core, BC100+ intends to promote quality debate, raise awareness and clarify the opportunities of blockchain’s role in realizing the UN Charter Values and the 2030 Agenda.
In the coming years, BC100+ initiative will be building a manifesto and running and participating in a series of online and in person events in various regions of the world in order to inform and gather feedback on the manifesto from various communities. BC100+ aims to also develop a comprehensive roadmap that will address critical social and sustainability challenges and drive systemic transformation using blockchain technology.
