As part of our series on AI for public good, this webinar launches our research on why and how do non-profit and grassroots organisations engage with generative AI tools, and the broader AI debate.

Online (Zoom)

As AI technologies evolve, they must do so in ways that benefit the whole public. To achieve this, everyone must be given the platform to participate in conversations about the design, use, and governance of AI. The voices of non-profit organisations, particularly those that are grassroots, have so far not been adequately represented in decision-making about AI technologies at various levels.

Recognising this, we commissioned We and AI to explore the following questions:

  • Why and how do non-profit and grassroots organisations in the UK engage with generative AI tools?
  • What are the main drivers and key elements that shape this engagement? 
  • How do these organisations see their role in shaping the broader AI debate?

More about this event

This event launches the findings of our report 'Grassroots and non-profit perspectives on generative AI' which engaged a broad range of social and environmental organisations in a survey, discussion groups and interviews.

Join us to hear an overview of the research, the main findings, and key themes for wider discussion. There will also be opportunities for you to ask questions to the research team.


Who is this event for?

This webinar is open to everyone, and will particularly benefit:

  • Non-profit and grassroot organisations
  • Tech for good innovators
  • Funders
  • Anyone curious about how AI can be used to generate public good
