Computing for the social good in education
According to the United Nations, twenty-two global issues face society . Many of these-Health, Food, Water, Poverty, and Migration-relate to Climate Change, while others are social issues related to Democracy, International Law and Justice, Gender Equality, and Human Rights. Each of these issues deserves the attention of the computing community, and in turn, demands the attention of computing educators. As a community, we dare not continue with business as usual. Specifically, we must do our part to fill the pipeline of future computing professionals with practitioners who deeply understand that they can use their unique skills to tackle the major social issues of our time.
