Project Description

Our Digital Future - Edmonton/Milan Social Relations

Our Digital Future - C’est ICI !

Over the past 30 years, a new digital culture, interactivity and instantaneous communication have fundamentally changed our world. We are now at a new crossroads: advances in augmented reality, virtual reality and artificial intelligence; the ‘internet of things’; how we interact with devices and the disappearance of the keyboard; big data and user experience tailored to the individual will all change how we live, work, play and participate in society – administratively, economically, socially and politically.

If you are a young adult between 18 and 30 years, have your residency in either Canada or Europe, if you are interested in shaping your digital future and also consider yourself as part of any kind of minority, this is the right project for you! The second of six ‘24hrs Thinkathons’ takes place in Edmonton on November 29 to 30, 2019. Register as of now and run the chance to win great prizes.

Connect with driven young people from Europe and Canada and develop ideas for our future on the topic of “Social Relations”! Work with like-minded people on-site and online to shape our future around “Social Relations”! How have social relations changed as a result of technological advancements? What can we do to positively impact the way we socialize in a digital context?

Your opinion matters! All outcomes will be shared with European and Canadian policymakers to make sure your voice is heard.
