An architect, a poet & an ethicist walk into a virtual conference...
Anya Pechko & Teodora Pavkovic present:
with support from America Offline & Patrick McAndrew
The conversation around our digital future has, thus far, been dominated by professionals in the technology and marketing industries. It's no surprise given their size and power, and the fact that as we continue to use their products the way we do, they remain [at] large. Their voices are the loudest, but as the old saying goes: Saying it loud doesn't make it right.
Well, we wanted to change this state of affairs.
And now we have.
We present to you the very first virtual digital wellness conference that will bring together thought leaders from fields as varied as poetry and AI, psychology and architecture, to answer some of the most critical questions around the impact of technology design, implementation and consumption on individuals, families and the world.
Any conversation about Humane Technology needs to involve those who care for humanity. The people whose primary stakes are in humanity, not technology.
One of the many exiting features of our conference is that, for the very first time, leaders from Common Sense Media, The Center for Humane Technology, the Digital Wellness Collective and the Children's Screen-time Action Network will come together to speak on the same panel. These are the individuals and organizations leading the way towards more intentional, responsible and healthier technology use and we found it unacceptable that they have never been brought together in conversation before.
