7. Digitalisation – added value and risks to the ecosystem

Moderator: Michaela Glöckler, President ELIANT

Digitalisation brought many benefits to different fields and dramatically changed human culture, communication and business. It is an important tool for change and for improving human life, but it can also lead to dehumanisation and a loss of empathy for the ecosystem we are living in. This workshop will discuss how to take responsibility for digital technologies and become active participants in the cultural changes digitalisation brings.
