I don't believe software can change the world. Humans can. I think our role as software developers is to support the ones that can make a change. We build tools and platforms to enable others.

As someone who has worked with impact driven companies, I can say that software can make a change. It can simplify having more sustainable behaviour, bring people from different origins together, can help choose between products which one is the most sustainable. Software is just a tool, that can enable humans to change.

As software developers, we're the hidden cog of everyone every day live. From a phone, to a computer or a TV, we're designing applications that affect people's lives. It's just a matter of using all our knowledge to make the right software to tackle one issue at a time.
