Session 2: Opportunities for charities in Web3

The second in Giant Digital's Web3 series for charities, Helen Olszowlska, MD of Seashell Collective and writer for Charity Digital, shares inspiration from the third sector with examples of charities who are already embracing the world of Web3.

Her presentation highlights some of the innovative work being carried out by forward-thinking charities using future digital technologies, including NFTs, gaming for good, cryptocurrencies and blockchain, demonstrating the opportunities that exist for charitable organisations today. 

Helen's talk demonstrates that charities across the UK and beyond are beginning to explore Web3 technologies as part of their charity digital strategy and growth. Whilst she provides some great examples, this is also balanced with some discussion around the possible challenges and considerations of exploring new technologies.

Other presentations in this Web3 series are available on our Giant Digital channel. Look out for our quarterly events for more charity digital inspiration!
