Imagine: A Better World – A Global Nonprofit Conference Recap

To further the achievement of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, we presented Imagine: A Better World – a global nonprofit conference where over 270 nonprofit leaders from around the globe convened at the Amazon Meeting Center in Seattle for a unique and collaborative learning experience.

There were three high-level conference themes:

  1. Overcoming global challenges through technology
  2. Increasing scale and reach through effective marketing and fundraising
  3. Powering mission and marketing efforts through Amazon’s social good community

AWS hosted the Smart Technology and the Sustainable Development Goals track, where attendees learned best practices and engaged in interactive dialogues around technology’s role in ensuring everyone has the opportunity to live a life of dignity on a healthy planet.

AWS, American Heart Association, AARP Foundation, and Global Citizen took the stage and delivered keynotes that outlined their vision, work, and possibilities for the future in a world that can be changed.

Track sessions included:

Amazon.com hosted concurrent sessions where Amazon specialists and nonprofit thought leaders shared learnings and best practices in social media, digital presence, and community engagement. Networking events closed out each day where all participants collaborated with one another and had the opportunity to engage with the various teams across Amazon dedicated to driving impact in the social sector. These included AWS Open Data, AmazonSmile, Amazon Media Group, AWS Cloud Credits for Research, We Power Tech, Amazon Business, Amazon Pay, Amazon Web Services, AWS Educate, and Merch by Amazon.
