London UK: What Can You Do (Earth) CIC, a UK-based Community Interest Company dedicated to promoting global sustainability and social responsibility, is thrilled to announce its nomination as one of eight finalists in the respected “Charity (Third Sector) Project of the Year” category at the UK IT Industry Awards 2023. The nomination recognises the exceptional efforts of What Can You Do (Earth) CIC in crafting an impactful digital journey through its “Let’s Create an App” initiative.
The UK IT Industry Awards, organised by Computing & the BCS – The Chartered Institute for IT, and UK Business Publishing – are renowned for celebrating innovation, excellence, and achievements within the technology industry. The Charity (Third Sector) category recognises organisations that have demonstrated exceptional prowess in leveraging technology for societal betterment.
The journey of What Can You Do (Earth) CIC’s “Let’s Create an App” initiative has been a testament to dedication, resilience, and innovation. The initiative encompasses the development of the transformative WhatCanYouDo.Earth website, designed to educate, inspire, and mobilise individuals and businesses in support of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Additionally, the journey extends to the creation of the innovative WCYDo App, which bridges the gap between awareness and action, enabling users to engage with the SDGs through meaningful commitments.
The “Let’s Create an App” journey has not been without its challenges. The Team at What Can You Do (Earth) persevered through the global Covid-19 pandemic, which disrupted normal operations. Moreover, the Team faced the unprecedented Ukrainian crisis resulting from the Russian invasion, a challenge that directly impacted members of the Team based there.
UK resident John Stuchbery, CEO and Technical Director of What Can You Do (Earth) CIC, expressed gratitude and excitement over the nomination, saying, “We are immensely proud to be recognised as a finalist in the Charity (Third Sector) category at the UK IT Industry Awards. This nomination is a testament to the dedication of our Team and the impact we are striving to make through our ‘Let’s Create an App’ journey. We are excited to share our story and inspire others to embrace technology for positive change.”
The winners of the UK IT Industry Awards 2023 will be announced at a prestigious ceremony on Wednesday the 8 November 2023 in London. This recognition highlights What Can You Do (Earth) CIC’s commitment to driving social change and sustainability through technology. The Team eagerly anticipates the event and the opportunity to share their impactful journey with a wider audience.
