An event for three communities to come together

1. The social sector and civil society

  • What people are worrying about or preoccupied by every day
  • What the struggles are for civil society organisations and community
  • What help is needed and what they need to better understand

2. Social scientists

  • Where they think the opportunities are
  • What they foresee as some of the unintended consequences
  • What questions they think need asking and exploring going forward

3. The technology industry

  • What the opportunities are
  • What’s coming on the horizon
  • How they make decisions about what to build and to experiment with
  • What accountability they have in place
  • What questions they ask of themselves and of the tech (whom do they work with and what do they do to understand the communities they are building for?)

And going forward…

We don’t expect this to be a one off conversation and so we will also be asking:

  • How can we involve more people?
  • What is the best forum for this?
