7. Digitalisation – added value and risks to the ecosystem

Digitalisation brings added value to different fields and has dramatically changed human culture, communication and business. It is an important tool for change, towards humanisation and a better life, but can also lead to dehumanisation and a loss of empathy with the ecosystem we are living in. This workshop will discuss how to take responsibility for digital technologies and how to be active participants in the cultural changes digitalisation brings.
