We bring you the most interesting moments from the Tech4SDG days in Barcelona, where pioneer and visionary CEOs gathered to share and discuss with us their journey towards the SDG (Sustainable Development Goals), a collection of 17 global goals designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”, set in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly.

The Sustainable Development Goals are:

  1. No Poverty
  2. Zero Hunger
  3. Good Health and Well-being
  4. Quality Education
  5. Gender Equality
  6. Clean Water and Sanitation
  7. Affordable and Clean Energy
  8. Decent Work and Economic Growth
  9. Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure
  10. Reducing Inequality
  11. Sustainable Cities and Communities
  12. Responsible Consumption and Production
  13. Climate Action
  14. Life Below Water
  15. Life On Land
  16. Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions
  17. Partnerships for the Goals

As the UX Design Lead for Google Assistant, Carla Echevarría shares with us how she architects the software looking at the diversity across not only gender, but also cognitive or physical abilities, race and language so it suits best the most user’s needs.
