Debate Mate x Deloitte Better Futures Month

Young people working alongside businesses to truly innovate and create something really special. 

As part of our partnership with Deloitte’s #BetterFuturesMonth in May this year we ran a competition for an an ideas that used technology for good. The winning idea was a gamified recycling bin, where AI technology captures an image of the rubbish, informs the user what the item is made out of, and then rewards the user with points if they recycle it into the correct bin. Those points then go towards a monthly prize for the students. Now the bin is installed at the winning teams’ school Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School and is being used!

We are grateful to Deloitte and Deloitte Digital for our partnership on Better Futures Month and for including us as a Social Value Partner. It was interesting to attend the CFO Advisory conference last month to discuss and run a debate on how profit and purpose can go hand in hand if the right partnerships are there. Innovation is the way to achieve this.

We are looking forward to what 2023 will bring and the innovative ideas that will be created through the next generation working alongside the best in business.
