Online Summit 2019
Shifting Perspectives – Redefining Sustainability
Welcome to Day #4!
Trends and technology: From blockchain to urban farming
Technology is now an indispensable part of our lives. And yet many of us are failing to use it in the right way.We must understand that whilst it has its place, we should be responsible and considerate in implementing it where it makes sense. Because technology alone cannot save us. We must recognise, technology is a double-edged sword – good or bad simply depend on how we use it.
Today, 13 out of our 60 speakers explore the ways technology is being used to generate real, social change. And can provide some of the solutions for our environmental, social and economic challenges.
Jemma Green, co-founder of Power Ledger, reveals how blockchain technology is allowing everyone to freely trade electricity among themselves, whilst Darius Reznek explores how modern technology and design can create more liveable cities. Nina Borgström and Paul Musembwa focus on the wider picture: How technology is changing our lives, and how we might develop an awareness and ways to use it in the right way.
We must learn, as a global society, that technology is merely a means to an end, not a magical solution.
