A FIRST LOOK AT THE PROGRAM
We are currently working very hard on designing the best agenda possible for this year's event, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all the humanitarian and development actors, technical experts, and researchers who have already agreed to join us and speak during the event.
We're very happy to announce that Laura Walker McDonald, Director of innovation at GAHI - The Global Alliance for Humanitarian Innovation, will join us to the event as keynote speaker to discuss the challenges associated with "Scaling up humanitarian tools".

The European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect on May 25, 2018. We are excited about this development because we believe it will help protect users’ rights to privacy and transparency. It is also an area of interest for CartONG and we hope that it can lead to new ways to work and to conduct project within our organization. This is the first GeOnG newsletter that we've sent since the enforcement of this new regulation and we therefore would like to use this occasion to reassure you about the use of the information that you provided when signing up for our newsletter. Your personal data is only being used for us to get in touch with you in order to provide news and updates about the GeOnG Forum. Should you wish to opt-out, you can unsubscribe using the link at the bottom of this and each newsletter. Thank you for reading!
