Space for Ideas “Can the Internet Save Us? Exploring the potential and the limitations of the digital age”

 

The internet has made our lives more interconnected and mobile than ever before. We are seeing the emergence of collaborative consumption and a new economy based on trust and reciprocity. On the other hand the internet is also making us profoundly disconnected. A growing body of science is showing what we already feel deep in our gut: we’re more isolated than ever before. Somehow we’ve allowed our relationship to gadgets and things to overtake our real-world ties.

 

Speakers:

Anton Chernikov, Founder & Lead Explorer at The Exponentials

Benita Matofska, The People Who Share

Severine Balick, Founder at MyGoodness

Richard Tyrie, CEO & Founder at GoodPeople

Juan Guerra, CEO & Founder at StudentFunder

 

In this Space for Ideas event we will be exploring the following questions:

Is digital really making our lives better?

What are the limitations of digital technologies?

How do we blur the boundaries between offline and online, and start to convert online activity into real world action?

What does the future of the sharing economy look like?

How is crowd funding and crowd sourcing going to change the way our society works?

Can we gamify doing good online?

How can we use technology to make business and the world of work more social?
