15:00 The digital revolution – Co-creating a new narrative of society – panel discussion
The digital revolution is changing the whole infrastructure of society. It’s not the icing on the cake - it’s asking what is cake and who gets to taste it.

The discussion about digital inclusion and digital divide is global and concerns access to the internet, robust high speed connectivity, tools and skills and how lack of that access is reinforcing the divide between weak and strong, poverty and prosperity and the opportunity for everyone to be a part of a sustainable society. It is a discussion about access to health and the risk of biased data in medical diagnostics. It is a discussion about access to payment and the possibility of crypto-currencies and e-krona replacing cash.

Technology is potentially an amazing enabler of efficacy, it connects the world and holds many of the possible solutions to fight climate change. As it becomes more embedded in everyday life and is increasingly taken for granted by those with relevant tools, skills and understanding – the exclusion of the digitally illiterate, or just citizens outside the high functioning and often male norm, deepens at exponential pace. Affecting democracy, equality, social mobility as well as sustainable business.

Join us in co-creating the alternative narrative of a new digitally inclusive society. Welcome all!
