What role can technology play in helping us live more sustainably? Can it empower action on climate & social justice? What are the risks?

About this Event

The Covid-19 lockdown has changed the way we engage with technology, as many more people work remotely and socialise online. Can technology help us as individuals live more sustainably and feel empowered to act on climate change and social justice? Bringing people together to share ideas and inform decision-making.

As technology providers use our personal data to tailor who and what we see online – there is a risk we become stuck in ‘echo chambers’ – only coming across beliefs or opinions like our own. This event asks:

  • How can we break out of these echo chambers, talking and listening to people with different views from our own?
  • What ethical responsibilities do social media providers have for spreading fake news and creating division?
  • What are artists and creative thinkers doing to bridge divides?
  • How can we support those who don’t have access to new technologies?

This event is part of the ‘Together for a Fair Climate Future’ online discussion series.

This series of six open events will focus on how action for the climate crisis and social justice can come together and how to recover from the Covid-9 pandemic in a way that’s fair, innovative, and positive for the environment.  The events  hope to develop positive, imaginative visions for wellbeing (social, economic, environmental) and practical actions for change. Involving activists, artists, filmmakers, academics, policymakers, utility companies, community organisers, and others.
