Build Stuff Social Responsibility
Build Stuff gathers the builders who make a long-term positive difference to people’s lives and their communities. However, since launching in 2012 and connecting builders around the globe, we have seen how technology is never a solution by itself. At the end of the day, people are always stay behind every technology.
So, as we used to say that Build Stuff is for people who actually build stuff, the team behind Build Stuff conference also tries to be a part of building a better life.
